    This legislation does not address the inequalities espoused by proponents. Regardless of whether the term marriage is applied, federal benefits will still be denied to same sex couples in Vermont. And states that do not recognize same sex marriage or civil unions will also deny state rights and responsibilities to same sex couples in Vermont. This bill will not change that fact.

    If a couple of any sex gets married in Vermont -- that cannot receive spousal benefits?

    That seems to be what the Governor is saying.
