Very good article and advice. However, when we finally get Marriage Equality in this country, we will then have the security that heteros have. Our families need and deserve the same security that heteros enjoy, for which they do not have to spend the thousands that my spouse and I did to gain some security, but not all.

From the article, "In the U.S., same-sex marriages are only legal in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Vermont". This is not totally correct. Same-Sex Couples have the right to marry in DC. This article leaves out the legally married couples in California as well.
This article does point out why Marriage Equality is so important........if a couple is married, then they should own property exactly as any other married couple regardless of gender make-up!!!
