I said it before and I will say it again. I could care less what you do.<quoted text>
Then you won't mind if we vote away your marriage rights
what marriage rights is it that straight married couples have?
majority of employers have done away with benefits for their employees-so there goes your insurance arguement right out the door.
filing your income tax jointly actually ends up causing the couple to pay out more taxes than they would filing single.
decision making in the couple's personal lives? Thats what powers of attorney, health care proxy and living wills are all about-straight people as well as gay do them every day to ensure that their friends, family, or whomever the POA is for will be protected.
Final arrangements? POA's can now legally sign for cremations for the people they were power of attorney over-also gives them the right to arrange the loved one's funeral how he/she sees fit.
inheritence after the death of a loved one? Well, you'd be surprised to know that a surviving widowed spouse doesn't automatically get the deceased spouse's belongings. Sure fired way for anybody straight or gay to side step inheritence issues is
to encourage their loved one to make out a will designating who is to get what. Likewise, make your own will and then you don't have any worries about fighting over stuff after you're gone. You can also put the clause in the will that anyone who contests forfeits their right to anything that they may have gained via the will.
custody issues? again, a legal matter that can be taken care of through a lawyer.
every issue that I have heard from the gay community can be taken care of without same sex marriage being made legal.
except one-making everyone else agree with your lifestyle.
heh, who DOES agree with anyone else's life style, so what does it really matter?
