Queerty is better as a member
I assume there is much more in that brief, because estate taxes represent only one of HUNDREDS of ways that federal laws exclude gay married couples. They discriminate in Social Security survivors benefits, immigration law, tax law, military spousal benefits, veterans benefits, and on and on.
These are real pocketbook issues, not just silly semantic arguments over words such as “marriage,” “civil union,” “civil partnership,” etc. Without marriage, you can’t even get the family membership at the gym or avoid the second-driver charge on your rental car. In other words, it costs more to be a gay couple than to be a married straight couple, and surely the court will find that to be discriminatory.
