    Was thinking the same thing...unspeakably cruel? Hyperbole much?

    Dude couldn't be buried next to another dude. Call a cop.

    Greetings, SMTA.

    : Since when has following the law become "unspeakably cruel?" Sheesh! This sounds like another emotional diversion to avoid discussing our $17 trillion dollar debt, growing at $10 million dollars a minute, which is cruel to millions who will be affected if we go over the edge of the cliff!

    Since the cemetery has guidelines and rules in place, why don't the men involved consider cremation? Both urns of ashes could probably be buried in the same plot, side by side, which would guarantee that they would be together for eternity, if that is their wish. Our family has done this. Just a suggestion... :

    They aren't "cemetery guidelines" nor is the plot management a state function. The article says " in a family plot bound by a directive that only permits his lawfully wedded spouse to be interred alongside him" The family bought the plots years ago and setup directives on how they were to be managed. Basically the plots were purchased and setup in a trust and it is the directives of the trust that require legal spouses only in the plots for none blood family.

    Ah, that explains the current problem. It will be interesting to see the solution to this. :

    Morning!

    As with any transaction, you read everything before signing it to save later surprises.

    It is not the fault of anyone but these clowns who did not read. Period.

    Pissing and moaning to the media with hyperbole bull**** ain't cuttin' it at all.

    It is their own fault.

    States do allow gay marriage - they should move if it's that vital.
    I think they're having more satisfaction arguing that it's unspeakably cruel than actually arranging a happy outcome.

    The Supreme Court made no such ruling. The constitutionality of State bans wasn't even addressed.
    Correct. Which means that those state laws are sill in effect... even in Ohio.

    People are full of themselves, sometimes, when they expect the state to change laws and magic to happen just because it's their last-wish. Someone at some point tried to get a CEO of a corporation fired.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    That's not even the issue.

    He just can't be buried next to another guy in that plot.

    Nothing is actually stopping him from being buried next to the other guy elsewhere.
