Marriage Equality Makes Cents
June 10, 2008Ending the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage not only provides more financial stability and safety for families, but it also makes good economic sense. Marriage equality stimulates the economy by enabling people to care for one another, thereby taking burdens off the government, while also increasing wedding and travel spending and acting as a recruiting tool for businesses.
Massachusetts experienced economic benefits over the past four years of marriage equality, newspapers and a recent study by UCLA's Williams Institute discuss the expected boom in California, and state governments in Connecticut, Vermont, and New York, and even the Congressional Budget Office, have all noted the economic benefits of providing fairness for all families.
