What is anorexia?
Anorexia Nervosa is referred to as an eating disorder and a mental disorder and is socially transmitted. It is defined as:
-Refusal to maintain a healthy body weight
-Fear of gaining weight
-Distorted body image

The life and thoughts of an anorexic revolve around their weight and eating habits. Mealtimes are points of stress in the endless pursuit of losing more weight. No matter how skinny someone with anorexia becomes, they never feel it is good enough. Those with anorexia will, in general, adamantly deny that they need intervention.

Marriage Rights & Responsibilities

Hey all! I am finally stepping back into the blogosphere after a mini break. I have lots of new topics planned, so check back for extra videos and posts every week! :)

Being surrounded by lots of folks in their late teens/early twenties getting married, I decided that this week on my YouTube I would vlog about marriage and the question of getting married young:







In the video, I talk about the legal implications of marriage in the United States. Here is a more comprehensive list of the rights and responsibilities, compiled from the Partner’s Task Force for Gay and Lesbian Couples, Wikipedia, and the General Accounting Office (GAO). You can find a full original list with all 1,138 rights (written by the GAO) here!

Typical Rights Granted by the State:

Assumption of Spouse’s Pension
Automatic Inheritance
Automatic Housing Lease Transfer
Bereavement Leave
Burial Determination
Child Custody
Crime Victim’s Recovery Benefits
Divorce Protections
Domestic Violence Protection
Exemption from Property Tax on Partner’s Death
Immunity from Testifying Against Spouse
Insurance Breaks
Joint Adoption and Foster Care
Joint Bankruptcy
Joint Parenting (Insurance Coverage, School Records)
Medical Decisions on Behalf of Partner
Certain Property Rights
Reduced Rate Memberships
Sick Leave to Care for Partner
Visitation of Partner’s Children
Visitation of Partner in Hospital or Prison
Wrongful Death (Loss of Consort) Benefits

Federal Rights

Access to Military Stores
Assumption of Spouse’s Pension
Bereavement Leave
Immigration
Insurance Breaks
Medical Decisions on Behalf of Partner
Sick Leave to Care for Partner
Social Security Survivor Benefits
Sick Leave to Care for Partner
Tax Breaks
Veteran’s Discounts
Visitation of Partner in Hospital or Prison

Some things to think about when considering these rights:

-The rights are applied in a heterosexist fashion. Only “straight” couples (in most places) qualify.
-Marriage includes a legal contract; these rights will not fix/maintain/insure the social aspects of your relationship.
-If you need to break the contract, you will need to file for divorce. More on that here.

I’ll see you all later this week! <3
