The merits of gay marriage aside, the issue is not about government intrusion in the manner that you assert. It is the diametric opposite.

No one says two dudes can't consider themselves married, or have a ceremony, or present themselves to society as whatever married means to them, or co-habitate for the rest of their lives, or any of that.

What is being sought is the government recognition of their decision and government enforced rights and privileges springing therefrom.

Government recognition and enforcement is government intrusion, not 'letting them decide' who they consider a lifelong romantic partner, which is between them and their circle of friends and acquaintances.
It's an equal rights issue.

As long as heterosexual couples receive secular benefits and rights (tax breaks, program availability, medical rights, etc.) for registering as a married couple, the issue of denying those rights to a homosexual couple will be in question.
