I read this article recently and it makes a really interesting point. As a society, we’re not only discriminating against those who love someone of the same gender – we’re also denying a number of rights and benefits to those who choose not to marry, or who aren’t fortunate enough to find a “traditional” soul mate. Should the legal and financial benefits that are attached to marriage be limited to those in a romantic relationship? Or do we need to evaluate and legitimize all of the ways that human beings bond with one another for support, companionship and an enriched existence? What do you think?
