That you even need paper for this?
Although money is also just a piece of paper ... you do need it to buy food. A brick is just a denser form of clay, you need it for home. A stone is a denser form of dust only, but you need it for construction ... and a certificate again is a colored piece of paper, but you do pursue it. A bill is a paper too ...
It is coming into accordance ... being human.... having laws and regulations that consitute a human social structure. There is no need to demonise it unnecessarily ... rather learn to be better with ourselves and make our life more streamlined.
As for the marriage paper ... it is a great momento for a couple. I can guarantee you that. I know it is for us (me and my wife). But not only that, it has many other meanings and implications that we respect and honor. Never felt it was a burden... because it is not. It is a law, and we are not anarchic or lawless. Even the jungle does have laws... however we are human and thus there is more about us.
