Gay rights? = benefits?

Here's the deal we want to whine about everything we don't have so now it's my turn. Federal government, and Disney and so many others allow "life partners" to be on each other's medical plans and get benefits but I had to mail a copy of my legal marriage certificate before I could be covered on my husbands union insurance. Go figure.....

  • They cannot just say that they are partners and have those benefits. They still have to go through proper channels and are investigated. You can send in a marriage license and everything is smooth but they have to PROVE their unions. Let's see, having to mail in my marriage license or having to fight for my right to be acknowledged as having a "legal union?" I will take sending in the license for $200, Alex.

  • Everyone has to send a copy to be placed on their spouses insurance. That is one of the reasons we need to legalize gay marriage.

  • Or how about I just go gay and I don't have to show proof of anything. I guess having three kids with a man and starting a family with him isn't enough.
