Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop

When U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon struck down Nebraska's ban on gay marriage, he said the measure interferes not only with the rights of gay couples but also with those of foster parents, adopted children and people in a host of other living arrangements.

The Kansas Constitutional Ammendment is similar to the Nebraska law -- it takes away rights now enjoyed by unwed couples, including inheritance, insurance benefits, child custody and the power to make medical decisions for each other -- and, for that reason, it may be vulnerable to a court challenge, as well.
