    marriage benefits" mean, if the marriage is legal?  If the marriage is legal, then presumably all the benefits accruing to that legal status will be accorded automatically to those who are legally married, right?  So where would the "exploitation" come in at all?

    As others have pointed out here, there are certainly ways to "exploit the system", as amply proven by heterosexuals in marriages.  But the idea that nobody is doing such exploiting currently, and that only gay people would do such exploiting once they were permitted legally to marry, is beyond absurd.

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
