Can You Still Get Married if Gay Marriage is Not Legal?
Of course you can! You can choose to have a ceremony that shows you and your partners commitment to one another regardless if gay marriage is legal in your state or country.
Please keep in mind though that if gay marriage is not legal in your state or country that you won't be considered officially married by the local or federal government.
However, your commitment that you and your partner made to one another during your ceremony will in fact remain REAL and VALID between yourselves and whomever was in attendance. Plus, if you choose to wear wedding rings then even strangers that see you will think that you are "married." Does this make sense?
You don't need the government to validate your commitment to each other in an emotional sense. But if you're looking for the local and/or federal benefits of marriage then that will only happen if gay marriage is legal in your state/province and country.
Since that is not always the case, and it's definitely not the case in the U.S., it becomes imperative that you help protect your own relationship. You can check out our Gay Attorney Services page to help with that important task.
For Gay and Lesbian Couples in the United States of America
This is very important for you to know. Even if you live in a state, like Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal (or even a state that allows civil unions,) you still are not recognized as married by the FEDERAL
So you still will not receive over 1100 federal benefits and rights that heterosexual couples receive when they are married. And you won't be able to file a joint Federal tax return among other things.
It is very important for you to check out our Protect Your Gay Relationship
page. That page will show you some ways that you can help protect your relationship, since the Federal government will not do it for you.
