    He's dying of Lou Gehrig's disease. So what?

    That doesn't entitle him to special plot privileges.

    Correction: They need to be married in Ohio for him to be buried with his spouse, and Ohio is challenging the judge's decision in their favor.

    Buttheads.

    Um, no they don't.

    From my understanding of the article this isn't a function of state law.

    The family purchased a bunch of plots in a private cemetery and one of the provisions was that an individual has to be legally married to qualify for a spousal position in the plots to be buried next to a spouse. It's not a state law, it's basically a "trust" administered cemetery administrators. The spouses involved are legally married, just not under the laws of Ohio, however does the plot trust state that the marriage had to be performed in Ohio?

    I think there are a lot of spouse burials in Ohio where the participants didn't enter into the Civil Marriage in Ohio.

    The two guys are Civilly Married, so the guy is his spouse. Ohio might not recognize the marriage, but that is a different matter.

    No it's a family plot, any other member of the family could be buried there in addition to a spouse. I guess it's first come first served unless someone calls "dibs".


    However the two guys are spouses, they even have a Civil Marriage license to prove it.

    Ohio does not recognize homosexual marriage nor civil unions. I am not surprised that the state is fighting back on this one. They should. They went to Maryland to get married in order to try to circumvent Ohio law and Ohio shouldn't contest the ruling, which I think was a bad one. I think Ohio will win this case.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Is it a marriage license the state recognizes though?

    Sure, the marriage license was issued by the state of MA, I'm sure MA recognizes their own license.

    If Ohio doesn't recognize it? Who cares, the issue has nothing to with them unless it's a state run cemetery. They quys have a legally valid Civil Marriage licenses and therefore one is the spouse of the other.

    Don't change my quotes. You want to say something different from me - then say that. But changing my quote is an a*holish thing to do.

    Maryland recognizes it and the court says Ohio has to.

    If marriage equality is the law of the land, and it is, then the states can't override that.
