  1. Yeah but the concept of marriage is patriarchal so who the F needs it? Stop feeding the beast.

    • Hello SAQ. I agree that in the past it was and it still can be in a bad marriage. However we can and have made the idea of marriage better for all. Now as to who needs it. I do! There are over 1100 state and federal benefits given to married people. I need my spouse’s work insurance. I needed to be married to do that even though we have been together 15 years by then. ( 29th year this year ) We need legal protections for inheritance, medical surrogacies, and property rights. I worked in an ICU where I seen a right wing evangelical Christian doctor do everything he could to cut same sex significant others out of medical decisions for their partner. After SSM was legal he would do the same to SS spouses. He once went so far as to call the siblings of the PT and try to get them to overrule the married spouse. When the hospital came down on him for it, he quit the case and we had to scramble to get another doctor for a very ill man. The only reason the hospital stepped in was the couple were married. Until then this doctor got away with his bigotry. So yes marriage is important. Hugs
