Domestic Partnerships

Sunday, April 22, 2007

For those that are interested, here's a link to the SHB 1351, Protecting individuals in domestic partnerships by granting certain rights and benefits (.pdf). Have a read through. It's really not that bad. Keep in mind that the "rights and benefits" granted by the state are revocable at will. That is to say, an act of Congress created these rights; an act of Congress can also destroy these rights.
Here's an interesting quote:

Although many of these rights and benefits may be secured by private agreement, doing so often is costly and complex.

Which must be why the preceding paragraph stated:

The public has an interest in providing a legal framework for such mutually supportive relationships, whether the partners are of the same or different sexes, and irrespective of their sexual orientation.

In other words, the same system that now claims to make it "easy" to create Domestic Partnerships is the same that made it "costly and complex." This is another example of the State saving us from the State.

All hail the State!
