« Michigan Court Rejects Domestic Partnership Benefits | Main | Maryland's Grandparenting Time Statute Ruled Unconstitutional »


Diana L. Skaggs

The respected American Law Institute is an organization of judges, lawyers and legal scholars that periodically drafts model laws and other proposals for legal reform. In "Principles of the Law of Family Dissolution," ALI scholars argue that family law should focus less on trying to channel people into marriage and more on being fair to people in different relationships. The reality is that we can no longer even define what a family is, but we know the majority of households no longer contain a married couple. The majority of U.S. citizens now reside in some other household composition and the law should protect them equally. It is outrageous that benefits are being stripped simply because voters have not permitted same-sex couples to marry. Having health insurance is a far cry from marriage.
