A gay person cannot bring in another gay person with marriage in mind.

Well, it's primarily the "right wing", since the Republicans actually have that written into their platform.

I think they are going to have to change that, or risk looking rather foolish.

And how is it not in the Government's best interest to allow gay couples to marry? Isn't a more stable and secure polulation ALEAYS in the government interest?

And really, the only people crying that now that two adult non-related humans can marry, that this will usher in marrying dogs, trees, and multiples, are the right wing nut-jobs.

For some companies the benefit option only applied to gay domestic partners, straight domestic partners were and are being discriminated against.
And that was because those straight couples had the option to legally marry and the gay couples did not.

Marriage equality changes that. Aren't you happy?

2. Partners don't get sick leave whether they're gay or straight. Gay couples can't create children. Many companies offer insurance to gay couples but not to unmarried straight couples.
3. Wills and trusts are available to anyone. If you don't have a will the state decides, gay or straight.
4. Available to anyone.
5. You can give tax free gifts to anyone, there is a $12,000 limit.
6. Anyone who worked 40 quarters will get social security, anyone who turns 65 will get Medicare.
7. I've never heard of such discounts, I have a family.
8. Baloney.
9. Don't break the law.
10. Yes, it's true, kids with a mother and father that love and care about them do better than those in any other marital situation.
Your list is ridiculous.
No, it's the simple truth. Your dismissal of reality is not healthy.

Here's a "rightwing" perspective that deserves some attention:

That's irrelevant. A domestic partner is a domestic partner. Straight domestic partners are often discriminated against, even when they have children.

I've heard of discounts for multiple vehicles and for bundling home and auto insurance. No insurance agent or company ever asked me if I have a family. You can buy a family health insurance policy but most people are insured through their employer. Gay couples can qualify for family health insurance at their place of employment but unmarried straight couples are discriminated against.
