This is like one of those stories from "out there" on Foxnews.com. Some people will do anything or go to any length for money.

Doesn't the marriage have to be consummated for it to count?

Another example of the slippery slope effect at work. First you allow gay marriages, next thing people will be lobbying for dead marriages.

A bum asks a man for $2. The man asked, "Will you buy booze?" The bum said, "No." The man asked, "Will you gamble it away?" The bum said, "No." Then the man asked, "Will you come home with me so my wife can see what happens to a man who doesn't drink or gamble?"

Fast forward 4 years from now to a murky precinct in Chicago and this guy will cast his vote for Kerry.

I was thinking the same thing. If you can "marry" another man, why can't this poor woman have the corpse she loves and the tax advantages?

This reminds me of the film SON OF DRACULA, where a gypsy fortune teller tells the heroine, "You will marry a corpse . . . ."
