Discussing the imminent changes to civil partnerships in the UK, making them open to all couples, Dr Chambers writes: "Giving all couples the option to choose between registering their relationship as a civil partnership or a marriage is a great improvement on a regime that recognises only marriage. In my book 反对婚姻：对无婚姻国家的平等主义辩护但我认为它不会走得太远，因为国家根本不应该承认婚姻。“
Exploring the restricting effects of traditional marriages on a society that strives for equality, Dr Chambers argues that a state which does not actively promote marriage is one that can eliminate discrimination of those who are not married and their children. She highlights that the religious and cultural background of marriage is an uncomfortable one for atheists and members of the LGBTQ+ community. However, Dr Chambers does not oppose all intervention of the state in relationships. She has a constructive vision of a future where the state protects people from inequalities and issues that can arise in a relationship, without prioritising those who are married.
During the event, Dr Chambers argued that state-recognised marriage violates both equality and liberty, even when expanded to include same-sex couples. Instead she proposed the marriage-free state: an egalitarian state in which religious or secular marriages are permitted but have no legal status.
