As explained in the article a Marriage Certificate is an important document, and proof of a couple being married. This document is required when applying for a visa for the spouse, for those immigrating abroad for work. It also prevents frauds. It legalises the marriage. It helps in settling property claims and makes inheritance easier, in the case of the demise of a spouse. It also prevents abandonment.
I think this is a good move by the Government. Such laws already exist in most of the developed countries.

Any Govt would like that people should firm up their marriage certificates in time to avoid any claims or denials at a later period. It is a very good rule that does not give cheats and touts to use it advantageously in someone's favour.

Even this challenging situation would ease
In the same way after some more days, people may become very selfish and if they are going to get any additional advantage they say I have not married her/him. So to prevent this type of problems government may be insisting to get the marriage registered.
One of my distinct relative was having a wife and children. But he was looking very young. So he tried to deceive a family by telling them that he was unmarried. That family was having a close friend whose daughter was unmarried. So they tried to get that man married to that girl. The boy has gone to the girl's house for seeing the girl.
Fortunately for the girl and unfortunately for the boy, at the same time a relation came to their house and seen this boy. The relative knows that the boy was already having wife and children. He conveyed the same information to the girl's family and averted a big havoc. If the marriage is registered these kinds of frauds can be stopped.
