    Its hard to respond to this with just a pure intellectual response. There is so much emotion involved in this. Its bizzare! One reason why i would want to work oustide of utah is because of this same reason. Lets say i have a partner and want to share employee benefits, utah would not grant me that. This is disgusting and repulsive. I hope it works out for them
