But what if you don't belong to a church? And does that have to be a Gov. sanctioned church or religion? Is that the same for straight couples?
Point is, it shouldn't matter at all to anyone but the individuals involved and their respective affiliations by which to be recognized. A legal document showing a union could be produced by said affiliation or lawyer, including estate, will, etc.
But I don't think the government should be involved. This whole tax exemption business for married couples shouldn't exist because they shouldn't be taxing our income in the first place.
I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just well-informed
