This is a similar scenario that Erik talked about during the Breaking the Silence Panel last week. If he and his partner were to be together another 50 years and one of them got sick and couldn't work and then the other died, then the one remaining would get no compensation because same-gender marriage is not legal.
What exactly is marriage? Who defines it? And what makes a marriage a marriage?
