53. Here's a list of US Federal Marriage Benefits
Edited on Sat Jul-05-08 02:53 PM by dickthegrouch
Every State has additional ones and modifications to the Federal ones.

The most egregious one that both Feds and State routinely violate is the Full faith and Credit clause for reciprocal rights for visitors/immigrants.

IMHO a Same-sex Married couple should sue the Federal government for failing to protect them if one is refused access to the other in a hospital.

The Constitutional distress this idiocy puts us in is utterly intolerable.
