I recently saw a lady on the news who lost her job and is desperate for health insurance. Now she is advertising herself on YouTube to marry someone who has good health insurance and that's the only reason she wants to get married because of her pre-existing condition and desperate health situation. She is looking for a man, but in today's world she could marry a woman just to get health insurance.
I'm thinking that homosexual marriage is going to open up the door for people to get married just for that reason. For instance, two straight friends could get married just so that the other can have health insurance. If two people of the same sex are allowed to marry, there's nothing in the law that says they can't wed whether they are straight or homosexual. We've added same sex as another legal class of people to the definition of marriage. Just marry your friends to give them benefits. Same sex marriage means extended benefits and, if we include polygamy into the legal definition of marriage, then everybody should be able to have health benefits. And they say homosexual marriage doesn't affect any one else?
