    It depends on how the rights are assigned at the time of purchase.

    In 15 years we are going to look back on the same sex marriage movement and think about how foolish it was, just like most rational people and how they feel towards the ciil rights movement and the woman's rights movement.

    Joint tenancy is allowed for many different arrangements, but "tenancy by the entirety" is something related solely to spouses.

    Tenancy by the Entirety legal definition of Tenancy by the Entirety. Tenancy by the Entirety synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.

    Same-sex marriages create new questions in property laws - Washington Post

    From further research it seems that the main advantage is that unlike other joint tenant contracts, tenancy by the entirety prevents a creditor from coming after a jointly held property by a married couple as long as the creditor is only owed by one of the spouses.

    The reason this is considered to be the strongest form of ownership is that the claims of one tenant’s creditors do not attach to the real property owned by the tenancy by the entirety. The one exception is if the creditor is the Internal Revenue Service.

    I think the supreme court will, at some point in the next ten or twenty years, hand down a real ruling, deciding once and for all the constitutional protections for SSM. And a generation or two later, same sex marriage will be just as normal as interracial marriage. It's not a matter of if. It's only a matter of when.

    I thought about this for a few minutes and I wonder why, if two people are so much in love that they want to get married, with the idea of spending the rest of their life together, they wouldn't want to spend at least a little time trying to save that marriage.

    What would they be curing, exactly?

    "Cure" implies some kind of disease or disorder that is harmful to someone's well-being.

    As far as I can tell, the only harm that comes of being gay is discrimination and violence from a bigoted society.

    Perhaps they'll find a cure for bigotry.

    So because you cannot relate to it it is foolish?
