      To visit the one you love in ICU before they die, and to have medical power of attorney.

      The right to divorce after moving out of the state, without having to move back for at least a year, first.

      The right to file state taxes jointly.

      The right to set up a legal domestic partnership for the simple cost of a marriage certificate, instead of several thousands of dollars in legal fees.

      The right to sponsor a spouse who is immigrating from another country.

      There's a very long list....

      Hey guys! There's a word for bad assets, they're called liabilities!
