Why would you oppose to something that doesn't affect you?

I'm a 60 year old widowed gay man, who was only allowed domestic partnership; it's not the same thing.

Who cares? It does NOT affect anybody but the two individuals involved....People are people, and who are we to tell ANYONE who they can/cannot love???

People should be able to marry whomever they desire. National polls support gay marriage by a slim margin, however, voters aged 18-35 support it be an overwhelming margin.

As long as we keep the queers in the closet so the rest of us don't have to see it

HUGE difference. I am assuming domestic partnership is like a civil union which would mean
A) your c.u. is good only for your state. If you got a c.u. in Il. and was transfereed to AZ for your job. You would have three choices. 1) decline the promotion because all legal rights you have as a c.u. ssc would be null and void in AZ., 2) If AZ accepted ssc c.u., you would have to agree to their states rules, which may differ from Il., or 3) go to AZ and loose all rights you have as a c.u. ssc.

B) Major federal differences. Federal government does not acknowledge c.u. of any type. So cant file joint taxes, If you are a fed employee, If you die, your c.u. partner will not get death benifits or share in your retirement, s.s. would not be passed on to them.....

These are just a few of the MANY inequities faced by people getting a c.u.

No such thing as a widowed gay man in California in your time. A one-year relationship is a lifetime of memories hardly deserving the status of "widowed," married or even divorce.

So the man married one year where the wife dies in an accident is neither a widow or widower..... I mean after all "A one-year relationship is a lifetime of memories hardly deserving the status of "widowed,"

Tell me why should a couple who are U.S. citizens together for 1 year who happen to be a ssc, enjoy less rights and legal coverage than a couple married 5 minutes

Marriage is a piece of paper which binds all of us legally. Married in NV, the marriage is legal in CA. All unions in any relationship must consider the most important event in life. It's death. Get your name on a legal document that gives you the same rights we all deserve in any relationship. Money, status, property and grief. My 8-yr. marriage legally can't compete with my 43 yrs. of friendship with the same man. Should he die, I'll grieve the 35-yr. friendship but I'll want the SS benefits I'm not legally entitled to. Before you get in a car and get killed in a crash, make sure your union is legal. In a registered partnership, get your name on the checking account and the real estate. At 60, who grieves anymore. I'm not opposed to s.s. relationships. Simply feel short term relationships are over when they're over.
