Should Singles Be Given Same Benefits As Married Couples?

There are currently over a thousand laws in place in the US that directly benefit married couples. But one author wants to know why singles aren’t given those same opportunities. Vicki Larson writes that married couples are able to reap the medical benefits from their partners insurance and even take time off to take care of their spouse.

She argues that while singles don’t have a significant other, they have other people in their lives and should have access to the same benefits.
