Not that it was unexpected in the current grossly liberal legal landscape, but it finally happened in West Virginia – the now politically incorrect terms “husband” and “wife” are being removed from all state tax forms beginning in 2015. The term “spouse” will be replacing both words. (H/T TheLibertyEagle)
The move was in response to two federal court rulings that recently annihilated West Virginia’s marriage protection amendment, which defined marriage in its true form – the union between a man and a woman. In a notice sent down the pipeline last month, the state tax department now defines “spouse” to include those married to someone of the same sex.
