Well, as for getting your shit when you die, typically the state will allow you to pass stuff off to your heirs, but if you don't specify, the state has to have some system to determine who gets what. Otherwise, nobody would know if your wife gets everything, or if everything has to be divided among wife and kids, or even more remote relatives.

If the state would get out of the business of taxing people differently based on whether they have a spouse or children, then I'd be all for getting the State out of the marriage business. But, I would still want to have a default inheritance law in cases where people die without a will or trust.
