    Ok, so if your heterosexual you need to be married in order to gain benefits for your F*&k buddy. Sorry I mean Husband or Wife. But now if your homosexual you can get benefits for your husband or wife, or F*&k buddy. Wait a minute, how does this work?

    we could screw with their minds and all claim homosexuality, then no need to go through marriage at all. Kick it to the curb. :clap2: No marriage, no divorce, look at all the money we save.

    LOL-

    Wouldn't that also help with the Health Care situation? Aren't employers obligated to insure their employees F-Buddy's.

    Is this real? Isn't there a 'common-law' provision in law for people who co-habitate? Share the ownership of the home, etc.?

    Or is this because marrying is illegal so this to take care of gay people in this regard without allowing real marriage?

    I'd say it probably works the way it should ... that Obama is seeking stop insurance companies from deciding who someone can list as primary next of kin and/or beneficiary.

    The real issue when you dust off all the gay marriage sensationalism. And I agree that ALL US citizens should have the right to claim legally whoever they wish.

    First of all, most states don't recognize common-law marriage any more, and none of them allow the formation of such now.

    Second, anyone can co-own a home, regardless of relationship. It just requires both names being on the deed. As an example, my daughter and my mother bought a home together.

    Third, whom employer-provided insurance covers depends entirely on the employer, not the law, and I for one have a real problem with legal incursions like this into private business decisions. Disney Co., for example, offers employee benefits to homosexual and cohabitating couples as well as married couples and dependents.

    What about the right of employers to decide whom they do and don't want to contribute to? Having been a human resources secretary in the past, I can say that I wouldn't be excited as an employer to take on the added expense and work needed to cover people and their serial-monogamy relationships, not to mention the amount of gaming the system this would invite.

    Can you imagine how much of a headache it would be to keep changing the partner.
