White House says VA will provide same-sex benefits


2. Marriage

3. National

4. "Potential legislation revising the spousal definitions statute for the purpose of veterans benefits"

5. This issue is extremely important to the households of veterans' significant others of the same sex who currently are unable to receive the benefits.

6.      I agree that same-sex partners should be able to receive veterans benefits. Although it may not be a traditional family setting, they were still committed to each other and may have built a family who deserves to receive the benefits, just as any other family would. It is not our place to stifle the legality of marriage between same-sex partners.
