How come the residents of Evanston don't get a say in this? So one alderman who happens to be gay wants to advocate, not for his fellow residents, but for his own lifestyle. The requirements: the significant other must be 18 and the same sex as the employee. So what's to stop the massive pile on of people who will claim a relative,friend, etc as being their "significant same sex other".

Treating gay families as equal- granting equal marriage rights- would prevent this pile up.

I am against same-sex marriage. I have been married for 27 years... and for 27 years it's been the same sex... BORING!
