"The tax code should be reformed to give no tax advantages to married couples. Then gay and straight couples would conclude, "Why are we getting married?"

Indeed, why are they?"


Still for several reasons

1) Inheritance and ownership of property and assets

2) Being able to see the other in a hospital and be allowed to make life death choices for medical care

3) Renting an apartment or house

4) Business reasons

5) Emotional reasons

You can reform the tax code so there is no 'marriage penalty' or preference, but it still comes down to other reasons.
