Did you know that living with someone in a domestic partnership can actually make you eligible for certain legal rights? Depending on what state you reside in, you could be afforded certain rights just by registering your domestic partnership.

In some states, like New York, you can register as a domestic partnership and enjoy your partner's health benefits. This can be useful for those couples who do not plan on becoming married but still want to be seen legally as a couple.
