Disabled people should be allowed to be married, without losing our benefits.

I'm a 41 year old woman born with (CP) Cerebral Palsy. I don't think the state of Nebraska should have the right to take away most of my benefits just because I want to get married. Getting married IS NOT GOING TO MAGICALLY CURE MY CP. I'm still going to need assistance with every day cares like bathing, dressing, eating, taking my meds, going to the bathroom 5 or 6 times a day, not to menchin taking me to doctors appointments.
The spouses can not do it all. They can not go work a full time job, and take care of their disabled spouse too. That's not fair for either one of them.
To me marrage is a partnership each person gives and take from a marrage. If I don't have other care takers helping my husband take good care of me. If he is trying to do it all, then it's not a real marrage. I would feel like I was his child and not his wife. That's just my personal opinion.
