I got me an idea.

How about if every gay and lesbian in the country just randomly (and legally) married a person of the opposite sex who was willing to do so? How about they do that, reap some tax benefits, and then get (again, legally..) divorced? Then, how about they do that every time it would get them a benefit that unmarried people don't have?

Would that be less costly to taxpayers and less damaging to the "sanctity of marriage"?

Extra bonus points for the ones who marry, adopt a child, and then divorce, with the hetero stating that they don't want custody. MAN that would RULE.

Re:
NOW YOU'RE TALKING!!! In fact, they should find every way they possibly can to exploit the benefits of marriage in this country.

That's great.

Actually, my mom (who is straight, so this is semi-irrelevant) did a similar thing when she married her friend temporarily in order to get custody of my sister who had been kidnapped by her biological father and my mother's first husband. Soooo that's fun.

I'm friending you, by the way. Your anti-aelius rant amused me greatly, and you reference The Jerk in your user info, so you win.

Re:
Heh... thanks! There is much wisdom to be found in The Jerk.

Friending back, if for no other reason than just so I can watch Eddie Izzard dance it up!
