When a married person is getting health benefits as part of their pay which most companies consider it part of their compensation, which can be
significant depending on the plan, as long as ability and experience are the same, other individuals should receive the same compensation.
Same sex marriage did not come as a result of wanting to define marriage or to even be married. It developed as a result of people living life
together and buying housing together, cars, savings accounts only to have it all taken when one person died.
Because they were unrecognized as a partner those bank accounts were resolved or usurped by the state, the property was also dealt with in a similar
manner. People wanted the benefits of marriage, and for all practical purposes they were married but denied because of a system skewed by some
religious beliefs denied to them resulting in benefit denial as well. Some states don't allow wills which exclude family members, even if estranged so
any money that both saved is then given to someone else to include everything in the house, death benefits etc.
