Do you think people who are cohabiting/living together and married should have equal rights?


In terms of benefits, it seems that some people only get married because couples can mutually support each according i. e, health insurance and other support which they can't do if they are just cohabiting. Do you think married and unmarried couples should have equal rights?

    "Unmarried couples do not deserve the respect of a married couple. They have done nothing to earn that respect." I think respect should not be based upon one's "marital status" but rather how they conduct themselves as a couple.

    With a divorce rate hovering over 50% one can't exactly say marriage is forever either. :-) I believe it's up to employers to decide if they want to offer domestic partner benefits. Marriage is a personal choice not a requirement.

    With a divorce rate of 50% it's all about (hope). Just because there are more hoops to jump through to end a marriage does not make it more secure. Married people cheat separate just like live-in couples do. Security is a state of mind.

    This is not the way it works in the United States. What happens if you break up? Have everything redone when you meet someone else?
