    Female Canadian couple get names on birth certificate

    How does eveyone feel about this? here's the article on it I found:

    http://web.morons.org/article.jsp?sectionid=9&id=6267

    Shouldn't this fall under the marriage rights amendments that have been passed lately in a bunch of states? I don't know about how the laws read in NJ, but it seems like the court order shouldn't have been granted just because they were married in Canada; that'd be like saying someone from the Netherlands can smoke pot here in the US because they came from a country that allows it. Any opinions on this?

    It doesn't have anything to do with marriage. They're both the child's legal guardians and it's in the child's best interests.

    I heard on the radio, which is why I found this article, that this birth certificate would give the moms rights to the same marriage benefits as hetero married couples, thats all.

    Rights over the child, you mean? Either way it works for me. I'm in full support of it.

    I read another article that said it does not rule on out of state marriage, it allowed this couple to avoid having to file for adoption papers to leagally declare both women as the parents of the child. Wouldn't this ruling be considered to favor only women couples and hetero couples? Also, couldn't this ruling be used to allow legal recognition of female out of state/country marriages?

    There is an agreement between our two nations that explicitly recognises marriages performed in one country as being binding in the other nation. That's why a Canadian couple can get married in Vegas, for example.

    No, marriage, period.

    It's just that no one on either side of the border dreamed at the time that we'd be marrying lesbians and gays. Which, by the way, I have no quarrel with.

    No, but if I were, I'd just move here. It's just a ways north of Vancouver :p
