You know the one that so many of you are so proud not to have..... The Marriage license. Do you have any idea what that stupid piece of paper entitles you to?
Or are you really just blissfully ignorant?
Do you not realize what would happen if your fake husband died and you dont have that stupid piece of paper?
Do you not realize that many people have fought for years to be able to even obtain that stupid little piece of paper?



To all those stating that is easy to just get legal paperwork done, then why can't the GLBT community do that? If its so easy for all you people who clearly have no legal background then please inform me on how you can do it, but my lesbian neighbors cannot!

and they obviously want to BE married if they're calling their boyfriends their husbands, they all need to wait in limbo like they rest of us did until their boyfriends just pop the dang question.

but you're totally right.  medical, life insurance, divorce stuff.. etc.

We are still fighting over mine. Gay marriage is still taboo.

I agree. I cant understand how couples can live together and have kids but not get married. What's stopping you. Court weddings are cheap.

Exactly, if something came up you can't make medical decisions for that person. You arent entitled to crap if they run off. People are just stupid sometimes.

I use to say 'its just a piece of paper' till I actually got married and then we bought a house etc. It's not a piece of paper its a lot more than that and I am the first to admit that I was wrong to assume it was.

I just stay out of it. To each their own other peoples lives are none of my business. I could care less if you are married not married, gay, single. All I care about is that the children are happy and healthy and well loved and taken care of other then that do whatever it is that makes you happy.
