A medical power of attorney solves that issue, married or not I would think.

It should and usually does, but (just like wills) they can be fought by a family member and if you don't have it in hand in an emergency, some docs/hospitals will not take your word for it.  If a "real" family member is around, they will get to make the decisions.
I had a copy of my medical power of attorney in my medical file with all my doctors and any hospital that I ever went to for some much as a test, just to ensure that it be on file for Sid if he ever needed it.  Marriage does it make more "sure", as I've never heard of anyone being asked to produce a marriage certificate in an emergency.

So True . The case in Alabama that is going to federal court is about two guys married in Boston Mass. … they had power of attorneys and marriage license and living will but when one of them was dieting in the hospital it was not enough to convince the staff and the guys didn’t get the farewell or dignity they deserved . Nothing short of equality will stop things like this from happening .

My dowry has gone up and down, over the last decade.  It is back up, with a lot of growth.  I think you'll be very pleased, when you deposit it.  I hope it all fits into your account, without you having to report it as in-come. 

Ok, I was really stretching it-- no pun intended.

I just read this reply to a right wing christian on a message board and it was so full of win I had to share it ...


The typical line from the religious side of the same sex marriage issue goes something like this: “stop shoving your gay agenda down our throats”. In the same breath, they go on to say, “You don’t see us shoving our religion down your throat”.

Well then…

Have you ever had a homosexual knock on your door (usually around dinner time) asking if you have found Elton John?

Have homosexuals ever passed laws that make the government print “In Homosexuality We Trust” on your money?

When was the last time homosexuals passed a law that rewrote the Pledge of Allegiance to say, “One Homosexual Nation”?

Have homosexuals erected a monument with Marc Jacobs’ top 10 fashion commandments at your local courthouse?

Have any homosexual groups spent millions trying to pass laws to outlaw marriage between a woman and a man?

Have homosexual activists worked to pass laws limiting birth control, abortion, etc?

Did a homosexual ever prevent you from buying liquor or a car on Sunday?

Is there a book promoting homosexuality in almost every hotel room in the country?

Have homosexuals pushed for laws to make the missionary position illegal?

Have homosexuals tried to pass a law allowing them to legally refuse service to Christians?

When was the last time you saw a group of homosexuals protest at a Marine’s funeral carrying signs that say God hates Christians?

This is what they call keeping their religion to themselves? Sheesh…
