If the person had a civil union the house would automatically go to the living spouse.
Im even willing to take a step further and totally remove Marriage from all civil law and make all couples(gay or straight) enter into civil unions in order to be recognized in the eyes of the government. Those civil unions would be granted all the legal rights and privileges currently only given to married couples.

I guess if California couples want to get a divorce, they can always go out of state like Arizona or Nevada.

I like this, and like I said before, I appreciate it when people against gay marriage can say this -- many, many citizens refuse to concede/compromise on this, atleast in discussion. So thanks to the both of you. My concern is based solely on the pragmatic rights of people.
