True.. but why is it like that? Why do we need special "rights" or "permissions" from the government to allow us to give inheritances/share health care benefits/ parental status/ or "tax breaks" (ie. get your own money back)to loved ones/friends/family/strangers?<quoted text>
I already outlined why: so long as there are special financial/inheritance/health-c are/parental status given to married couples?
Those rights >>must<< be made equal to all adults getting married, regardless if the religious bigots don't like that.
So that is why.
Even with out being involved in a relationship with someone I should be able to purchase a product for the (HealthInsurance) even if they are a complete stranger let alon of the same sex..
I personally think that for their to be "Marriage equality" that they should get rid of marriage altogether.. But if this is the route that you want to take then I say throw in polygamy/polyandry into the mix as well... I mean consenting adults are consenting adults.. right?
