@AB Bride:  well I guess BC is a pretty liberal province so I’m not too surprised.

@AB Bride:  totally!

I don’t disagree with it but that being said if they want to give you the same rights as an actual marriage(spousal support etc) then it should be longer then 2 years. I’m thinking 5-10years  with maybe a tiered “benefits” plan. IE At 5 years your entitled to “abc” and after 10 years “xyz” with the ability to opt in or out of things if the couple agrees.

yeah a lot of people are upset by it. But how many times do the courts have to see cases like this before they better define the letter of the law, I guess.

some good changes also went into effect regarding parenting rights for same-sex parents, and protecting donors, etc. So it was all bad.

but my wife and I are getting hit hard by taxes this year, being the first time filing as married. At first I got all pissed off, saying I wish we hadn’t got married!! then I remember this law went into effect, so it wouldn’t matter anyway. damn I wish we didn’t haven’t to pay more tax now
