I dunno, I read the new articles. Several things stood out.
1. This seems to be the first incident of "abuse". There seems to be no history. There's usually history, if a couples been together that long. If there is a establish history, I will reconsider. (however I think that would have paraded through the media, if there was)
2. Harold had signs of dementia. That one fact, makes every thing the county states stand on shakey ground. It has many, many implications, as I'm sure any one who has dealt with dementia will know.
If there was an estabilished history of abuse, I can understand their actions, other wise....I wish the the people involved the same fate as poor Harold, to die alone, without a farmilar face for comfort.
I think homosexuals should be able to marry. It really isn't any different from a childless heterosexual couple. The full kit and kaboodle of rights. I don't see what the big deal is. I really don't.
