This is a reminder for ANY unmarried partners (especially if you share a residence) to have their “legal houses” in order before disaster occurs.
Legal protections, such as receiving status updates from doctors and not being evicted from your home by your partner’s family, are automatic with marriage but require extra legwork for the unmarried.
ps – the gofundme page mentioned is not accepting any more donations at this time, but I would have gladly donated more if it were… the page does give more backstory to what is occurring with this lovely family that I have never met, but have followed and appreciated thweir poly related posts on their blog. (Click to see all the “updates” on the gofundme page.) My condolences to Jade and Adam on their loss. Jade’s blog is down., but you can see some of it archived.
