96 comments on this lame post? Instead of blaming Paul...maybe a lot of you folks should start looking for your news and opinions from more than just the Slog. There is a great big world out there. And on top of that, Slog isn't what it was a couple years ago.

1. Bureaucracy/paperwork can't be changed? That has got to be the worst reason for denying a civil right I've ever heard.

2. You think the history of polygamy is bad? Read a little about the history of regular marriage.

It's sad that the comments are better than the post 9 times out of 10 on the Stranger

Sorry to say it but Slog has gotten so lame lately. This is the best thing on here today, not because it's good (it's stupid and insulting) but because everything else is so dull.

And of course it is totally OK to counter something racist with a disgustingly bigoted comment -- by hey, Charles is the ultimate troll. And for someone as disgustingly sexist as you, Charles, to criticize someone else's racism? You have no credibility at all, dude.

Eric Klinenberg from NYU: "Perhaps more important, singletons are fueling the economy. They spend more discretionary dollars than their married counterparts. Their average per capita annual expenditure was $34,471 in 2010, according to the federal Consumer Expenditure survey, compared with $28,017 for married individuals without kids and $23,179 per person in the highest-spending families with children."

#13 wow you are a real hero for getting married.

in fact, single people add much more to the economy than married people, so your argument is dumb. single people contribute A LOT more to the economy than married individuals, so if anything, there should be a benefit for remaining single.

#17 That fact that the government is involved in our personal lives does not mean that it has do so in an unfair way. Why is that so hard to understand?
I can understand why government gives tax breaks for certain things that are considered for the good of society, environment, etc. I don't believe that if I got married I would be doing society any good, so why should I get benefits for it? Am I really hurting society by remaniing single? Unless you can explain to me how my being single (but partnered) is hurting you? Please, I'd love to hear.

#10 ok i get it. you welcome the state into your private relationship, and think it's fair to penalize people who don't. i disagree with that. just because something is a certain way doesn't mean it's right.

Yes, I realize what marriage is. That doesn't make it right.
