My X's lawyer tried to get my divorce contested over interest on a couple hundred bucks I refused to pay till divorce was signed. The judge actually laughed when I fipped a quarter across the table and said, "that should cover it till I get out to the car and get my checkbook."
Go to church, have your wedding, have your party, Why on earth get the government involved ?
Idk if you know about the case in that has gone to supreme court but I'll cliff note it for you. Basically this woman's spouse passes away after 45 years of being together and legally married in the state of NY (their home state). Her spouse passes and leaves her the estate. That's well and good, except she was made to pay $360,000 of taxes on the property. If her spouse was a man the total of taxes she would of had to pay is $0. Fair? I think not.
Sure, there are down points to marriage but that's why you should pick your partner CAREFULLY no matter what sexual orientation you are.
