How the Gay Marriage Ruling Affects You

If somehow you missed it, the U.S. Supreme Court just made the final decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide!. Every time a ruling like this comes down, millions of people, most of whom are neither gay nor looking to get same-sex married, loudly comment how exactly it impacts their life …

… so for them, here is a handy guide:

If You Are a Homosexual and Are Already Married:

If you had been lucky enough to live in a state that allowed gay marriage, the federal government already recognized your marriage as a thing, and you were eligible for tax, health, and pension benefits under federal law like any other married couple. Previously, if you had moved to another state that didn’t recognize gay marriage, that state didn’t have to recognize your marriage. Now, your marriage is recognized everywhere, the same as anyone else’s.

If You Are a Homosexual and Want to Get Married:

Where before this came down to whether or not your state had legalized it, now you are free to do so regardless of which state you live in.
