Gay adoption case goes to ME high court

    I'm really interested to see how this one turns out.

    I think the title of the thread is misleading; if this adoption and monetary claims don't hold up, I think it would be due to the "adult adoption" nature of the case (i.e. not a normal "parent-child relationship") and potential financial implications in addition to residency requirements. I think this would have very little to do with sexual orientation of the parties involved.

    It's not like this is a case of gay parents adopting children being challenged in court. I agree with and support adoption by any and all loving parents, but the circumstances of this situation are way too strange.

    This is a weird story. Interesting to see how it turns out, though.

    And Diabeetus, please don't use ME as an abbreviation for Maine. This ain't the post office, dammit!

    Adult adoption has been used by gays to allow them to gain familial rights with their partners.

    This is interesting from that standpoint. There are a lot more of these couples out there.

    I've always wanted a girl, sportchick. Particularly one with a large trust fund.

    I'm the wrong girl for you, then. My trust fund is about $500.

    Hell, my trust fund is debt.

    Just change the minus to plus. They'll never know until it's too late!
