    Well, that's easy, just give someone else power of attorney.

    But you may change your mind when you get married.
    Thats cool. So why can't gay couples just give their partner power of attorney?

    For that matter, why can't all couples just give their partner power of attorney if they want, and not give it to them if they don't?

    Then why is that kind of nonsense attached to a marriage license to begin with?

    They can. Except there are hundreds of other things that come automatically with marriage, including some that can't be replicated any other way. And replicating them could cost thousands of dollars in attorney's fees. Marriage is much cheaper and easier.

    Right, so my choices are to either marry someone I don't want to marry, or to pay thousands of dollars in attorney's fees if I want to receive the same benefits that married folk get for free?

    No.

    But marriage isn't free. It's more like a prison!

    Marriage is not just a word. It is a complete sentenance (life).

    I vote no. It's against the sanctuary and tradition of marriage (a sacred bond between man and woman). On this matter I don't think I can get any more conservative.

    Based on your answers to the questionnaire, you most closely resemble survey respondents within the Enterpriser typology group. This does not mean that you necessarily fit every group characteristic or agree with the group on all issues.
