Update marriage certificates!

This petition had 471 supporters

Today, when two people want to marry they apply for a marriage certificate. As it stands, only the father's name and 'rank or profession' is needed on a marriage certificate. In today's society, it is archaic that just a father's name and profession should be on there. 

In today's society we have many  unique and wonderful family types. What happens for people who don't want their fathers name on there. Or if they are a lesbian couple? And in the future their child wants to get married?

Ideally a person would be able to include information for only one parent if they so wish.
