see a lawyer and get a contract. Simple. Don't need marriage to do that.

Well... it's all fine and dandy to have a relationship without marriage until one of them becomes sick and the other is shut out of their hospital room and can't make any important decisions on their behalf. So really, it is more than just a piece of paper, and that's only one example. For me, I wanted those power of attorney rights (among other things) and getting married was the easiest way. I guess to each their own, but I just hope that couples who don't marry but do plan on staying together long-term ensure that they create living wills (and so on) so that potentially life-alerting decisions can be made by their spouse. "We've been living together for 15 years" just doesn't cut it, unfortunately. Why do you think gay people are fighting so hard for marriage?
