How does the same sex marriage ruling affect funeral arrangements?

submitted by Jason “Oz” Oszczakiewicz, Owner/Supervisor, Varcoe-Thomas Funeral Home of Doylestown, Inc.

For many years, same sex couples were discriminated against when making arrangements for a partner who died because they did not share the same legal rights as a defined married couple in the United States. Partners could not sign off on authorizations, make plans for a burial or cremation arrangement, select merchandise, nor sign the contract unless the partner’s immediate family authorized them to do so at the funeral home.

Before this ruling, there were many times when a funeral home would be caught in the middle of a dispute over the right to control and would have to contact estranged family members to sign off on legal documentation to allow a partner the right to control the funeral.
