      Why? Because there is no good reason to elevate the survival or well-being of people in couples over the survival or well-being of single people.

      And I say this as someone who has spent the majority of my adult years in long-term partnered relationships (2 total), and was single for 3 years in between.

      Whether or not I have a partner did not and does not change my need to survive and my desire to be well in surviving.

      And anyone who would try to argue that couples are somehow more deserving, my warning is: Watch the road you go down with this.... it may lead you right into the arms of the anti-gay fundies, who won't be very welcoming.
