Looking for Roommate/Marriage Partner

I can see the personal ads being overcome with headlines such as this. Why not? If you live in Canada, the advantages to being “married” should make it a slam dunk. Get married to whomever (man, woman, gay, straight), and then when you find that special person with whom you want to spend the rest of your life (or at least a couple of years) , get an annulment and marry him/her. It’s brilliant! No more filing “single” on your income tax returns, no more checking the “Miss” box on the application. Now you can be married, with all the benefits that brings, but without the waiting for the perfect mate to come along. I say all we single folk band (wedding band, that is) together and make this happen right here in the U.S.A.

    The notion of civil unions was an attempt at this kind of “compromise”. If I understand it correctly, a civil union could involve any two parties. For example, two elderly widowed sisters could have a civil union in order to better protect each others assets, rights, etc.

    In the gay marriage debate, the civil union is used as a means to stay away from “marriage” language and to open up unions to more than just the homosexual population.
