Maine residents Brenda Nichols, 38, and her partner, Christine Nichols, 39, juggle work with family and try to keep their daughters safe, healthy and happy. For them, being able to be legally married isn't about a fancy wedding – it's not their style – but about protecting their children.

It's about making sure the family is legally protected in case one of them dies, about getting tax benefits to help them save money for college, and about a stability that comes from growing up with married parents. (Link)
