Speaking as a same-sex marriage supporter myself, my reaction to this email that Glenn Reynolds got (“Gay Couples May Be Pressured into Marriage: Benefits May Be Terminated for Unmarried Same-Sex Couples”) is the same as Glenn’s: “Well, yes. Just like straight people!”
…Yeah, sorry to tell folks this: but coming with the ability to get married is this entire societal expectation that you will get married. I understand that some sub-demographics of the gay community are a bit upset about this: ach, well, cultural assimilation is a trial for us all.
PS: Just wait until it becomes clearer that our ongoing fertility rate problem will eventually produce the societal expectation that of course gay couples will adopt, too.
PPS: Yes, I know: it is great fun to stay up until 3 AM drinking at clubs. I dimly remember such things, before I married and had kids. Alas, while my current state of mind is hardly misery… it loves company, too.
