Don't miss these top stories:


The topic of same-sex marriage tends to spark heated debates, but cooler heads usually prevail when it comes to the idea of domestic partners and workplace benefits for those couples whether they are of the same sex or different sexes.


If you agree that companies who offer benefits to workers' spouses ought to offer those same benefits to workers' domestic partners, then you might be surprised to learn that the federal tax code severely curtails such benefits for the workers who receive them.

Read our story today about one couple who faces as much as a $3,000 tax hit each year on their health benefits -- a tax hit that married couples at the same workplace don't have to pay -- simply because this couple happens to be comprised of two women.

It's always surprising, and often dismaying, how many contested social mores are locked into the tax code.

-- Andrea Coombes , Personal Finance editor

Same-sex couples face higher health costs

Each year as the April 15 tax deadline nears, Shane Snowden is reminded how much more she pays for health coverage for her same-sex partner than her heterosexual colleagues pay for their spouses' benefits.
