Why is it that I am not surprised at the tactics that Gays and Lesbians will go to force the idea of Gay marriage on the nation. On November 4, 2008 the voters of California passed Proposition 8 which states:
Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.This passed 52.3% to 47.7%. Thus the voters of California spoke saying no to Gay marriage.
This is not the end of the arguement. The supporters of Gay marriage are not going to take that lying down. They have a new tactic. Get rid of marriage. No I am not joking.
California's top election official says supporters can start collecting signatures for a proposed ballot measure to strike the word "marriage" from all state laws.Domestic Partnership is not the same as Marriage. In a partnership, one can just leave the partnership without legal recourse. In a Marriage it takes a divorce to dissolve it. One can have multiple partners in a Domestic Partnership. In a Marriage a person can have only one spouse at a time.
Supporters of this ballot measure want to replace it with the term "domestic partnership," while keeping all the rights of marriage in place.

If this measure passes how long do you think it will be before it is brought to every state in the US?
Marriage is not a right, it is a privilege. If it was a right the government would have to supply each and every person in the nation with a spouse. They don't. And a couple planning on marrying should not have to go and get a Domestic Partnership license but a Marriage license.
Changing the name of Marriage to Domestic Partnership is just a bad idea.
