Unintended Consequences

IBM Corp., the New York Times Co., Northeastern University, Baystate Health System and others offered health care to same sex couples living together. Then on May 17, 2004, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's Goodridge decision legalized same-sex "marriage". To make it fair, if you are a couple living together, but not married, you are not elegible for partner health insurance. So you better get married. Oops, 11 states out of 11 just said marriage is defined only as a union of a man and a woman. It appears homesexual couples may be back where they were some years ago, with no health benefits for their partners. Tip of the hat to The Washington Times Insider.
