Another reason to legalize same-sex marriage...

Sure, no one likes to talk about divorce, but the weird legal and quasi-legal ramifications of same-sex unions that end are boggling. If we could just get married, attorneys and divorce court judges wouldn't have to risk an anuerysim trying to figure out exactly what the law is, and how it applies, when same-sex people split up.

Long time, still not married.

Tara has decided we are now The Walcoffs.

Not sure why it has a "c" as neither of our last names do. It should really be The Walkoffs, but that's like "walk off." So, until the spelling is finalized, I'll just alternate between the two. Hey, if there's "color" and "colour", why not "Walkoff" and "Walcoff"?

I have argued, at various points, that "The Walcoffs" sound like:

*A bad movie: Meet the Walkoffs
*A bad 1970s disco line dance: Do the Walkoff! Da-da-da-dadada-ta-ta
*A law firm: Walcoff & Associates
*A discount department store: "I'll just run down to Walkoff's and get some of those cheap pantyhose I like."

It seems we are actually involved in film and law and there is, indeed, a Walcoff & Associates. It just doesn't get any better than this. See the Google search here.
