  •  So if a RI couple married in MA (1+ / 0-)

    Then they could file joint Federal returns but would have to file single state returns?  Bizarre.

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.

      if I married in MD, which I can do now, but went back to PA I still would not be able to file jointly at the state level but could at the fed level. The Patchwork is going to fall apart.

      (Several conservatives have made note of the patchwork too, most notably Rick Santorum, but their solution is to ban marriage equality entirely and forcibly unmarry those 200,000 or so people who did marry.)

    •  Er, (1+ / 0-)

      I'm pretty sure Rhode Island recognizes same-sex marriages that have been performed in other states. I think you'd need another state (Pennsylvania?) for your hypothetical.

    •  Not sure. (0+ / 0-)

      Might be that the married NY couple who move to NC have to file single Federal and state returns.

      I don't know.
