I could see marriage priveledges get abused very quickly.

Could it possibly happen that 2 friends pretend they are "gay" and get married for lowered taxes, insurance, etc? And considering if one dies, the other friend can get all his ****. Plus you could date any girl you want and not have to worry about being divorced and having all your **** gone.

Anyways, its a more fragile subject in court, as it would bring a lot of new problems they'd have to deal with. Considering anyone can abuse the system.

You mean like every teen on the planet? Wooa, that would be balls :D"   
   
I also heard the economy of canada has collapsed because of all the fraud.   
You know, like in Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and every other country that legalized same sex marriage.

Can't men and women already pretend to be married to get benefits? Why is this a sudden new problem with gay marriage?

How is that a problem? Why do they need to know who the husband is? Does the husband get specific rights?

Because, As i'm assuming from what i've heard from other people, in like cases with children, the mother almost always gets the children unless the father has some serious **** on her.
or so i'm told.

The way something like that works, is the primary caregiver keeps sole custody except for extreme cases. Usually this is the mother, because the mother breastfeeds, or stays home to raise the child. In the case of a homosexual partnership, if they were to divorce then the parent that acted as a primary caregiver to the child, the one that stayed home and didn't work in a single-income household, for example, would receive the child.

Right, because there are no dual-income straight marriages....

I was answering his question in the context of homosexual relationships. In dual-income straight marriages, the child usually goes with the mother because the mother is usually the primary caregiver, unless the parents agree otherwise or there are extenuating circumstances.

While what he said is true if the children are old enough, like 13 or so, they can have a huge influence on a court case. Like if they didn't want to go with the mother.

Except there's places where gay marriage is already legal and there's been all of no news made of problems like this.
