Minnesota's new law for same-sex couples-Part I

Same-sex couples in Minnesota face some difficult issues that are usually not experienced by their heterosexual counterparts, such as discrimination and other similar social issues. Marriage laws that apply to same-sex couples and family issues that include child custody are so new and untried that their interpretation sometimes leaves room for confusion. In most cases, same-sex couples are compelled to consult legal professionals who understand the current law and procedures to be followed for family law matters, such as domestic partnerships, separation and divorce of married same-sex couples and child custody and support.

Delta Air Lines lowers cost of healthcare for same-sex couples


Same-sex partners often face many legal issues if they reside in states where same-sex marriage is not recognized. Therefore, Delta Air Lines, one of the largest employers in Minnesota, recently updated its healthcare coverage for employees in same-sex relationships. According to this new policy, employees covered under the airline's healthcare plans will no longer pay taxes associated with healthcare coverage. In fact, the airline announced it will shoulder the tax obligation, helping same-sex couples achieve universal healthcare coverage at a lower cost.

Obama clarifies position on same-sex marriage equality


Although Minnesota is among the growing number of states that now allows same-sex marriages, this new form of legalized relationship has not yet been adopted by more than a dozen states.
