It would take a lot of resources - time and money - to get just a subset of the benefits one gets by signing a marriage license.
Why? We have an institution in place. It's called "marriage", and conveys a whole host of legal protections, rights, economic benefits, etc.
I see no good reason why we should just dump that institution, and force people to go it alone.
