Question: How can people reverse the same-sex marriage law in California? How can people reverse the same-sex marriage law in California to make it legal?
Answer: the constitution needs to be amended to allow for it. this can be done through a ballot initiative, or through the legislature.
there is also an appeal of the old prop. 8 case working its way through the federal courts, so that might ultimately result in the repeal of the law. i believe oral arguments for that case start at the federal trial court tomorrow, and it will probably work its way to the supreme court within a few years.
Question: What do you think about the same-sex marriage law in Argentina? Is it a gay friendly country? With this new same-sex marriage law, will it become a more open minded country? Please, if you have personal experiences they will be interesting to read.
Answer: I think it's great the Argentina allows gay marriage now, but to be honest Argentina isn't really "gay-friendly" although I've heard that the city of Buenos Aires is gay-friendly. In a few years Argentina should be gay-friendly but as for now, it isn't.

Question: Are the Canadian Churches required by law to perform homsexual marriage ceremonies? Do they have a choice or not with the adoption of gay marriage laws? Are they able to still choose whom they may marry or not in their religious ceremonies? What freedoms if any have been lost by churches to your knowledge? No guesses please just law or facts only.
Is the Canadian government not only dictating doctrine to churches, but to religious schools, and to individuals? How? I realize that there have been some hate speech law suits but what does the law state?
Answer: In Canada, 3 publishers, several news/feature writers and even a photographer have been fined heavily and even imprisoned for failing to cowtow to the homosexual requests which violated their religious and conscientious beliefs. More yet for publication of things the homosexuals could construe as not positive toward gays and lesbians, and therefore hate speech. If pastors are not being prosecuted yet for preaching the Bible and refusing to perform services which violate it, then it is only because the gay supremacist lobby in Canada does not yet feel confident enough to try to make it happen.

Question: Can a common law marriage from Texas be legally recognized in Louisiana? My fiance and I just got a declaration of informal marriage from the county clerks office here in Texas. His job is based out of Louisiana and they are telling us that because they don't recognize common law marriages they can't add me to his insurance. I read up on Texas common law and found out it's as legal as a real marriage, if we split we'd have to go through a divorce and everything. So shouldn't it be recognized as legally binding in other states?
Answer: If you follow the procedures in Texas for an informal marriage, it is just as binding as any other marriage and is recognized in other states, including LA.
Your problem is in telling the employer that it is a "common law marriage". It is not. It is an actual marriage.
You might need a Texas lawyer to write a letter to the employer to clarify this for you. Good luck.

"As for Domestic Partnership, we recognize common law marriage with the proper documentation to go with it."

Question: How do I change my name after a common law marriage? I am officially common law married on August 13, 2010. How do I go about changing my name afterwards? If you changed your name after common law marriage, how did you do it?
Also, if you are common law married, did you get a certificate?
Answer: If you have a common law *marriage* you will not get a certificate of marriage. You will likely not get any of the 139 perks that go with a real marriage. you may or may not be able to inherit your husband's estate, ie house, unless it is in your name too. car, furniture, bank accounts and all the other stuff that accumulates over time when two people live together. You may or may not be able to draw his pension. You may or may not be able to draw social security from him.
You have no benefits except what he chooses to give you. he has the same problem. Be aware of what your getting your self into.

Well, legally, it is a relationship without a lisense but still recognised as legitimate.

Question: I am looking for information regarding gin marriage law, specifically in Texas. Anybody know where to find it? Gin marriage law is a law that was used in some U.S. states in the mid to late 1930's. It required waiting periods and/or medical examination before a marriage could occur. From what I can infer, it was unpopular and repealed, however I believe some parts of the law still exist today in most places that had it. Anybody know where I can get the history of this law and its impact on existing marriage law in Texas?
Answer: I suggest going to your local law school library and ask for access to a copy of the Texas statutes during that time period. That's probably your best bet.
Question: Should the law be changed to keep the Church out of state and federal marriage laws? It is my opinion that a "marriage" belongs in church and a "civil union" belongs in the court-house. This would allow gays to marry according to the law (and receive all benefits they are entitled to) without infringing upon the church's sensitivities. I also believe that NOT changing the law is allowing the church to legislate morality...a violation of our constitutional rights. What do you think?
Answer: first off, the law should allow homosexual couples to get married
i think a marraige service should be offered by the government in the case that a church refuses to marry a homosexual couple. everyone deserves the benifits (misery) of marriage.
i think the church should be more accepting because isnt that what they stand for? love and happiness? does it really matter in what form that happiness and love come in?
and if the church wont marry them then a government sponsered program can do it for them. thats just how i think...fair and equal.
