Prior to the above nickname evoking Communist China given to the Commonwealth by some conservatives, Massachusetts was home to the second President of these Unites States, John Adams. It is also home to the Kennedys and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who shares a house in the Western part of the state wither her partner, Susan, in addition to an apartment they share in Manhattan. On February 6, 1788, Massachusetts ratified the U.S. Constitution and was the first state to abolish slavery and the first to allow same-sex marriage.
As progressive as the state seems, the words “domestic partner” are nowhere to be found in the intestate laws. You will find only the words “husband” and “wife.” Therefore the matrimaniacal fatwa against the unmarried types continues even in “Communist Massachusetts.” In what was previously known as the “Cradle of Liberty,” if you are not married and there is no will…there is no way. No love for the Bay State.
