Maybe technically speaking all states offer what is called a civil ritual but the quasi-religious nature of the ritual sometimes required, as well as the problems erwins and crocoduckhunter have pointed out, not to mention all of the times in history where religious ideology have determined many aspects (including, well, the most important one - who can get married), make me think a truly civil marriage is still not possible in some places.
