Either you’d have to force the different major branches of Christianity to squabble over who gets to call theirs “marriage”, with all of the other relegated to finding a new name, or you’d have to grandfather in the term “marriage” to apply at a broader level than a single sect, which leaves you in pretty much the current situation.
Who’s you and why does you care?
When Mormons marry in the temple they call it a sealing because they view it as persisting after death (whereas typical marriage ceremonies use the “’till death do you part” language). Do you really think that causes problems?
