What are we asking for? 1,138 rights!
Ultimately, civil marriage is a basic civil right as well as a private and public commitment of love and support by adult couples.
In personal terms, marriage is a celebration of love and commitment.
It means others can recognize the commitment the couple has made to one another.
The choice of whether or not to marry is a personal decision.
Civil marriage also provides a gateway to over 1,000 federal protections, responsibilities and benefits as well as many more provided by your state. It lets a spouse make decisions about the medical care of a partner who is disabled. It enables the couple to organize their financial affairs as a single unit for economic, tax and insurance purposes.
