  1. I think that's the way that it's headed.

    The current marriage controversy has its roots in insurance coverage. The insurance industry is greedy and wants to control who (and in what age/risk group) can be on your policy. Hypothetical: If I'm an elderly lady with insurance coverage that would normally cover a spouse, but my spouse is dead and my sister who is uninsured moves in to care for me, she isn't eligible to receive insurance (as a spouse would be) on my policy. If I marry my sister, we're covered. And that's what it's all boiling down to.
