The gay partner of the Highway Patrolman doesn't get benefits because they weren't legally married. Two men can't be legally married because IT'S WRONG!!!!! What's wrong with you Jaco? Some of us still have some morals and a sense of right and wrong. Evidently you have lost yours.

. I was happy to see this issue this morning. I lost my partner of 15 years on 9/4/2009. We had all of the legal items in place and I still had to keep the documents with me throughout the process. We were lucky that our attorney informed us of all legal essues. Without this I would not have been allowed to make sure his wishis were enforced. My inlaws wourld not have changed things but they would have to have done everything. I am lucky that we had the finical ability to make sure the legal issues were taken care of. The cost was in the thousands of dollars. This case just showes the need for all couples to fight and win the right to be recognized legaly. In Missouri it costs less than thirty dollars to have over onethousand bennifets that cost us thousands of dollars. Who really wants this those wo can end it for a few hundred dollars or those of uswho want it desperatly enough to pay the price. Even if the state and our country looks at us as second class citizens we choose to stay in the country we love, much like an abused spouse.
