The Libertarian Case for Gay Marriage

Here's a link to a well thought out post over at QandO by Jon Henke on the subject of same-sex marriage.
The ideal libertarian solution would be to have the government get out of the 'marriage' business altogether; to have government enforce civil contracts...

But since we don't live in Libertopia, we're left with a purely civil legal privilege available to one set of people, but not to another set... the civil legal privileges of marriage should be extended to everybody.
