C’mon people, get creative.

INCORPORATE and write bylaws to suit the particular needs of your “union”.

You could name your new partnership “Wedded Bliss, LLC”, or if you’re planning to adopt, you could go for something like “HIMHIM and associates” or maybe “SHE&SHE Group”.

Instead of exchanging vows, exchange powers of attorney.

I think you’d find that you would have far more rights and benefits than are provided for by standard marriage laws. Heck, doing this would probably even be an improvement over marriage for heterosexual partnerships.

Im for civil unions all around, for gays and straights alike, the state should stay out of it in the first place.

its not about the rights but having the Title of Marriage... because there are several legal alternatives like you suggest that would accomplish the same if not be more beneficial.

Also just for myself, When I met my wife, and we dated, I knew at some point she was the "one" I didn't need the state, I didn't need a Church, I didn't need anyone to "tell" me we where married.

In my heart we where, and the state getting involved was an after thought... and thats about as sappy as i get.

Not sappy at all


Excellent points. The state mucks up more friendships than they'll ever support.

Marriages are so out dated . In some cases it has even turned into a sport to see who can have the most . I been with my girlfriend for 7 years ( longer than a lot of people have been married for) There is no need for it . I understand there are people who are religious and that is part of their faith. Funny how some people cry for individualism and quickly run off to be part of conformity.

My Girlfriend said that is a very materialistic point of view. lol

(edit) Why do people feel buying things is a sign of affection. If I didn't care for her I would of left a long time ago. Also if she was a woman who materialistic and wanting proof of love threw proof of purchase I would of left along time ago.

Marriage is a contract between two people, that is arbitrated by the government.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who is gullible enough to want the government as party to a legal contract, deserves any and all of the horrible things that are predictably going to happen to them as a result.

^^ this.

jk, I feel pity for the gullible because learning how manipulated they've been is never a picnic. Its when either party begins flinging hatred and blame and using innocent children as battering rams during the court battles that my sympathy dries up because that always leads to more dysfunctional kids and bigger government and bigger laws.

Marriage is the #1 cause of divorce.
That's all I have to say.
