    The true issues vary. Yes, a gay partner should have visiting rights in a hospital, and the ability to make medical decisions if there is a civil union in place. However, should a company be required to carry a gay partner on an insurance plan? Should their credit ratings be tied together like a married couple? Should they have to pay the marriage penalty in taxes? And if they split up (which fail at a much higher rate than heterosexual relationships), how do you split the assets? Who gets the kids if they're raised from birth in the same home?
    Hospital Visitation Rights for Gay, Lesbian Partners Take Effect - ABC News

    By DEVIN DWYER (@devindwyer)
    Jan. 19, 2011


    Patients at nearly every hospital in the country will now be allowed to decide who has visitation rights and who can make medical decisions on their behalf -- regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or family makeup -- under new federal regulations that took effect Tuesday.

    The rules, which apply to hospitals participating in the Medicare and Medicaid programs, were first proposed by President Obama in an April memorandum and later implemented by the Department of Health and Human Services after a period of public review.
    No marriage needed.

    I never specified America but yes it has. For example marriage used to be only between people of the same race but that has changed. Marriage has changed constantly.

    This thread is about a New Hampshire law, so yeah we're talking about America as per the Interstate Commerce Clause.

    If you want to talk about traditional marriage then you would have to talk about marriage outside of the U.S. as well.

    What theme is that?

    I don't know what you mean by 'traditional' marriage as we're talking about a veriaty of marital forms, but as this thread is about New Hampshire law, what other countries do with marriage isn't relevant as those other country's laws have no standing in New Hampshire.

    Please don't answer a question with a question, it appears deceptive.

    Well I apologize, I wasn't reading your conversation, I just chimed in.

    I was just trying to coax you to expand on your statement "For example marriage used to be only between people of the same race but that has changed. Marriage has changed constantly."
