    And a will alone at Legal Zomm costs $70-$80, not counting the $15 a month subscription fee. Then there is the costs for each of the other documents, some of which expire. The most expensive marriage license is about $100, most are much less, less than even the cost of just the will.
    You'd also have to get a myriad of various institutions and organizations to recognize the familial status of Legal Zoom-based contracts. Like hospitals and visiting rights.

    It was also great when we split up! Simple.

    But that's the point people here are trying to make too. You can live with someone, even call yourselves married (we didnt) but then you dont get what legal marriage offers by govt recognition and that does flow down into a million daily things. Some good, some not. I never missed not making it official.

    But gays want and IMO Constitutionally deserve legal marriage. They want that 'stuff' protected by and provided by that contract...let 'em.
    I agree - there are benefits but the wife also has her own house and I have mine. Both of us have take care of one elder parent... it's certainly not the situation I would have seen myself in at 47. We've known each other since HS though fell out of touch for nearly 10 years. There are tax benefits and other things which has made us think about just doing it in the past - we joke and say at 20 years we're just going to elope to Vegas and surprise everyone. Truthfully we both do well enough economically and I know on my end, I don't want some stupid piece of paper screwing things up. We are both each others "power of attorney" in case something happens to one of us, so we at least try to plan and take proactive steps.

    Sure.

    Go to this website: Elvis Weddings - The Elvis in Concert wedding package and reserve a date/time. Put it on your CC.
    Make sure to get the Elvis Pink Cadillac option to pick you up at the McCarran Int'l airport, get airline tickets to Vegas.

    When you get there the pink Caddy will pick you up, take you to the little chapel, you fill out a forms and pick your witness, then have a wonderful wedding. I'd suggest staying at the Bellagio for at least 3 nights as it's just amazing- do some gambling and then fly back home.


    FACTS FOR THE WIN!!!!
    BOOM!

    Justice]Justice Department Will Urge Supreme Court To Rule In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage Department Will Urge Supreme Court To Rule In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage

    Justice Department Will Urge Supreme Court To Rule In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage
    The U.S. Justice Department, however, isn’t standing inactive on the sidelines — they’re stepping forward to put in their own two cents on how same-sex marriage cases should be settled. According to the Washington Blade, Eric Holder has stated that the Justice Department will file a Friends of the Court brief, in which they will “urge the Supreme Court to make marriage equality a reality for all Americans.”
    Holder said. “It is time for our nation to take another critical step forward to ensure the fundamental equality of all Americans — no matter who they are, where they come from, or whom they love.” - See more at: Holder]Holder to file brief arguing marriage rights 'for all Americans' to file brief arguing marriage rights 'for all Americans
