Crap like this is why I am a huge supporter of the right of homosexuals to marry.
It reminds me of a conversation I had shortly before marrying Antwon:
Me: Well, getting married isn’t going to change anything between me and him.
Coworker: Then why get married?
Me: The same reasons gay couples want to get married – it simplifies legal paperwork and grants all sorts of rights you have trouble getting otherwise – hospital visitation rights, that sort of thing.
Coworker: Oh! I had never thought of that.
