The ultimate guide to the past, present, and future of same-sex relationship laws in the U.S.

Same-sex relationships are treated differently under each state’s laws, and nearly a quarter of the U.S. population lives in a state with some form of legal recognition for same-sex couples. More than 85,000 same-sex couples have entered a legal relationship since 1997.

Making It Legal is the only book that offers a comprehensive review of all the issues that influence the decision to marry, breaks down the complex and ever-changing rules of same-sex relationship laws, and provides practical guidance on one of the most important decisions a couple can make.

Following a brief history of the same-sex marriage movement and a survey of the current legal landscape, Making It Legal discusses the important factors involved in the personal decision to marry along with the issues that every married couple may face:

Is a pre-nup advisable? What does it involve?
What happens when you want to file your taxes?
When is a will or a living trust needed?
What are the special needs of same-sex couples with kids?
When should you turn to professionals for help during disagreements?
How do you work with step-parents, past partners, and the blended family?

Nationally-recognized same-sex relationship law expert Attorney Frederick Hertz and Attorney Emily Doskow have written the ultimate guide to the ultimate decision — whether to enter into a marriage or other legal relationship with your same-sex partner.

Well done This work was quite well written and executed. It was researched and drew on actual knowledge obtained first hand, which presented a view that many of us never get to see. While a little dated due to the pace that Gay Rights is moving… this is an all around great resource to start planning and making certain you have things in order, whether gay or straight. It has many helpful tips for those of us residing within the bounds of more intolerant environments and will be useful in a big way…

Retired Superior Court Judge gives a thumbs up review As a retired California State Superior Court judge, a mediator and arbitrator in family law matters, as well as a member of the LGBT community myself, this is the first book I would recommend to any gay or lesbian friends who are contemplating marriage anywhere in the United States. This is an exceptionally well written book for all – you don’t have to be a judge or attorney to reap much benefit from following the advice of these authors in moving through the complexities of same-sex marriage,…

Straight Talk What a smart book. The authors explain complex legal issues in clear, everyday language any reader can understand. Great gift for gay friends.
