Same-sex marriages

By From page A7 | July 26, 2013

EDITOR:

Someone just sent me an e-mail about the new same-sex marriage rules. It really hits the nail on the head.

Two men came up to the counter to get a marriage license. The clerk noted they sure looked a lot alike to which they responded that is because they are blood brothers. The clerk was disturbed and said the that same-sex marriages are for couples of the same-sex who love each other and want to be married. To this they responded well, we aren’t gay, we love each other and will live close to each other, but we want the financial advantage for this marriage. We will not be committing incest.

There were other examples of taking advantage of the new rules which have been fought for long and hard for the main reason: money. If married, two people can file a joint tax return and get various other benefits awarded currently only to married couples. It is still the old push for finding more and more ways to get money from the government. Unfortunately, the current administration is more and willing to buy your allegiance any way that they can.
