I'm inclined to agree with Mayo. Unless they're going to offer partner benefits to both gay and straight couples, then marriage is sufficient since it's open to everyone. After all, the whole reason for partner benefits in the first place was because gay couples couldn't get married.

Well, here we go. Now they want it both ways, because they are special. You wanted it, you got it. Welcome to the real world of unintended consequences. Enjoy the ride. BTW, I was 100% for the rights of gays to marry.
