More on Marriage Equality

29 May

I am going to continue to push the issue of marriage equality until it happens!  As most of you know by now, committed LGBT couples are denied over 1,000 benefits accorded to our heterosexual brothers and sisters. Even simple little benefits such as hospital visitation, insurance, and right of survivorship. Right of survivorship is an extra filing fee that LGBT couples have to pay that states property owned by the couple will go to the survivor, should one of the partners die. Heterosexual couples do not have to pay this additional fee, it is automatic.  Other benefits we are denied include social security and retirement.

My husband and I have been together now for 12 years, longer than any of the marriages of Britney Spears has had.  Is my marriage really that threatening that heterosexual can justify their bigotry and discrimination on a matter of civil rights?   Click here to see this brief article regarding marriage equality.

    I believe that after you came to visit me and Bryan, we had to go to marriage counseling – your product placement of the homosexual lifestyle nearly sold us on it!

    In all seriousness, I don’t understand why this denial of Civil Rights continues. Committed couples should be allowed to get married, period. Marriage (all marriage) is good for the economy, good for the couples involved, and good for our country.

    Ever since we received our official, treasonous marriage license from the Socialist Republic of Massachusetts, we’ve made it a practice to crash weddings. We just stand in the back being happily married and homosexual. The vibe we generage has broken up dozens of marriages on their very first day. The Gay Agenda strikes!!

      I could not be prouder of y’all! I’m sure many of the heterosexual marriages are in great peril, just having read your comment. 🙂
