The ultimate guide to the past, present, and future of same-sex relationship laws in the U.S.

Same-sex relationships are treated differently under each state's laws, and nearly a quarter of the U.S. population lives in a state with some form of legal recognition for same-sex couples. More than 85,000 same-sex couples have entered a legal relationship since 1997.

Making It Legal is the only book that offers a comprehensive review of all the issues that influence the decision to marry, breaks down the complex and ever-changing rules of same-sex relationship laws, and provides practical guidance on one of the most important decisions a couple can make.

Following a brief history of the same-sex marriage movement and a survey of the current legal landscape, Making It Legal discusses the important factors involved in the personal decision to marry along with the issues that every married couple may face:

  • Is a pre-nup advisable? What does it involve?
  • What happens when you want to file your taxes?
  • When is a will or a living trust needed?
  • What are the special needs of same-sex couples with kids?
  • When should you turn to professionals for help during disagreements?
  • How do you work with step-parents, past partners, and the blended family?

    Nationally-recognized same-sex relationship law expert Attorney Frederick Hertz and Attorney Emily Doskow have written the ultimate guide to the ultimate decision -- whether to enter into a marriage or other legal relationship with your same-sex partner.
