I took a class on feminist theory that had a whole unit on marriage and weddings. It's not quite today's-legal-primer but it did include some legal stuff--a legal history over the last couple hundred years and some discussion of how legal marriage interacts with social services, thus how marriage functions differently for poor couples (mostly) than for middle-class couples. I'll try to track those references down.

The pro-marriage-equality websites also tend to do a good job of listing the legal details. Try GLAD (http://www.glad.org/), or maybe Lambda Legal (http://www.lambdalegal.org/issues/marriage-relationships-family/).
