Marriage equality is here to stay: Understand the benefits and complications

Full legal marriage is now available in all U.S. states. But there are still many questions that same-sex couples should discuss before walking down the aisle. Learn about:

  • adoption and legal parentage rules
  • your state’s laws about same-sex domestic partnerships and civil unions
  • whether your registration will be recognized if you move to another state
  • the federal tax implications of getting married or registered
  • how marriage will affect your family if you have children, and
  • responsibility for your partner’s debts if you’re married.
