Attention, Single Mamas: George W. Bush has a proposal for you: a marriage proposal. That's right, he wants you to get married. You're particularly encouraged to don a bridal veil if you're on welfare and/or parenting as part of an unmarried couple. If you act now, you might even be able to get hitched before Congress makes its decisions about Bush's plan to fund marriage initiative and abstinence-only education programs with welfare dollars.
First Comes Love. Then comes domestic partner agreements, durable powers of attorney for finances, health care proxies, hospital visitation authorizations, last wills and testaments, living wills - and, if you are parents or prospective parents, donor and co-parenting agreements.
