Definitely. And this above comment is absolutely ignorant.
Call me old fashioned, but I don't think highway robbers (or their family members) should be given a free ride for life on everybody else's dime.
Yes. This irks me so much. I always hear that it's ok that same sex couples cannot get married because they still have "partnerships" and will still receive the same treatment and rights. This is a perfect example of a case that is NOT equal because same-sex marriage is not allowed in MO.
David, that hardly makes sense since straight couples have the option to marry here while gay couples do not. Many gay couples would marry if they could. The best way to fix the problem is to legalize gay marriage.
They get taxed just like the rest of the population and that system is for everyone in their time of need so yes benefits should be rewarded
As soon as straight partners not married are allowed.
Well that is 90% of the reason same-sex marriage is being fought so hard for so yes.
I think if a person works hard and earns their benfits , it shouldn't matter who their partner is! They deserve the same treatment for their time and effort. Same as a traditional married couple, a family is a commitment.
I think it's an embarrassment that Missouri still has not joined the 21rst century.
Yes they should. I agree w/Robert West. Why is gov't. interferring?
If they were married then yes. Doesn't matter if it's man/woman, woman/woman, or man/man.
The government should not be in the business of granting marriages. Leave that to ritualistic institutions, and let the government preside over civil unions (which should be available to all couples regardless of sexual preference).
It would be a start. In a word, YES.
