New Rules Proposed for Same-Sex Benefits
By Danielle Leigh
(NBC News) Danielle Leigh reports on an increasing number of same sex couples are now legally saying their vows.
19 states now allow same-sex marriage. And this year alone, Federal Judges have declared gay marriage bans unconstitutional in 8 states. Now the Obama administration is expanding the rights of those couples.
Attorney Sarah Warbelow represents the LGBT community says.
"It's actually a huuuuuge deal for same sex couples who are living in states that don't recognize their marriages." Said Warbelow.
