What Do Marriage Brokers and Assisted Suicide Have In Common?

If you guessed maybe a bad joke on The Tonight Show, perhaps. But actually, it's the California Legislature.

They're both pending bills. If passed, international marriage brokers will now have to be licensed, and assisted suicide may become legal in California.

The “Compassionate Choice Act would authorize an adult who meets certain qualifications, and who has been determined by his or her attending physician to be suffering from a terminal disease to make a request for medication for the purpose of ending his or her life in a humane and dignified manner, ” according to Assemblywoman Patty Berg (D-Eureka), who authored this bill. Oregon is the only other state with a similar law.

This year may be a first for California. Licenses may be required to get into a marriage and to get out.
