    granted under marriage would pertain only to those who are married and not to those who have civil unions...that sounds idiotic I know; however, if those who have civil unions choose to go to another state to be married, the Federal benefits would convey to them.

    •  I'm not sure about this (0+ / 0-)

      isn't another issue, though, is if a couple moves (permanently) from, say Illinois or Colorado to...say Massachusetts or Iowa then because of reciprocation (usually standard in these marriage/CU bills) then wouldn't they be considered married?
