I've never understood why marriage privs were exclusive to divine orders. Presumably marriage occurred in Lusternia during the time when all the elder gods were in the void, so why is it that secular marriage is impossible now? The following positions should, in my estimation, be authorized to perform secular marriages:
City Leader (where at least one of the parties is a citizen of the city)
Guild Leader (where at least one of the parties is a member of the guild)
House Head (where at least one [and hopefully only one] of the parties is a member of the family)
TA's and VA's (since they approach a certain degree of divinity anyway)
I used to make cakes.
