This whole domestic partner business and benefits.
The Medical College of Georgia may be poised to join the state’s two largest universities in calling on the state Board of Regents to extend health insurance benefits to domestic partners.
Faculty members in the medical college will vote online through Aug. 11 on a resolution asking the Board of Regents to extend health insurance to domestic partners – unmarried couples who live together.
Mind you, my objection has nothing to do with gay marriage. It has everything to do with the potential for short term arrangements causing long term hassles. I think I’d be more comfortable if they at least establish a live-in period of a year or so. Make sure the couple is actually in a long-term relationship and not a six month thing that ends badly with someone needing to give me back my black t-shirt.
