In my country, people get married twice (on the same day, it's a whole travelling circus type thing), for the church and for the state. If you're only married for the church (never heard of anyone doing this...), as far as inheritance and taxes etc are concerned, you're not married. Gay ppl can marry for the state and for some religions, but not others. So religions can make up whatever rules they want, and people get all the legal protection marrying anyone they like.

I think he means that kids use different words, grammar, structure. You have to bring that across to the other language as well, so it sounds like stuff a kid might say. Probably pretty weird if you're used to doing eurocrat lingo.
