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.

The road toward full marriage equality has been bumpy, however.

Social Security benefits for same-sex partners now available
