Federal Marriage Amendment idiocy

Doesn’t the draft amendment prevent all new marriages?

Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution or the constitution of any state, nor state or federal law, shall be construed to require that marital status or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon unmarried couples or groups.

that marital status…be conferred upon unmarried couples

What does that mean?

And for that matter, shouldn’t the language be neither this Constitution nor the constitution…?

Who wrote this soup?

And to think that the people responsible for suggesting that this abomination be added to the United States Constitution consider themselves patriots.
