It costs more to be gay

A few months ago I said I was going to find this article for someone and post it. I don't remember who, or exactly why, but here it is. Along with a bunch of other things, because I got sidetracked while searching for it and got somewhat obsessed with posting things from the NYT.

Our goal was to create a hypothetical gay couple whose situation would be similar to a heterosexual couple’s. ... Here is what we came up with. In our worst case, the couple’s lifetime cost of being gay was $467,562. But the number fell to $41,196 in the best case for a couple with significantly better health insurance, plus lower taxes and other costs.
