    What private companies choose to do is up to them, since it involves private money.
    I agree they need to be consistent. But I don't have a problem with government employees receiving benefits.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    By the way Jerry, my mother is gay, please tread lightly.

    I don't have a problem with general benefits that all employees receive. I do object to benefits that are only given to married couples.

    If your going to start taking any of this personally, leave the thread. I'm not responsible if you take offense to a general statement about a group.

    And hay, my sister was gay. She chose otherwise since then.

    edit:
    I need a link to a non-pdf please. This comp can't open them.

    That's like asking a fish to stay dry. Jerry will resort to any mudslinging he thinks will stifle your voice.

    He's tried it with me multiple times.

    You want to play stupid games, fine:

    I asked what are the parameters? Here was your question to 'clarify'.

    What I pointed out was that the article didn't give any specific information on how a couple qualifies for these benefits--the parameters of eligibility.

    There's been speculation throughout the thread about boyfriend/girlfriend's and roommates getting these benefits and I'm just trying to see if anyone knows what they're talking about.

    I think you knew and understood that and were dodging, hoping I would let it drop.

    Care to answer now? -- What does a couple need to to in order to qualify for these benefits?

    Got you. I agree. Especially when a certain class of people is prohibited from marrying.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?
