Yalman Onaran, Bloomberg News on Retire Secure! For Same-Sex Couples:

“After reading this book, and as the landscape changed radically in the past year, I realize we’ve made a great financial decision as well. Because my husband is back in school to change his career, we get a marriage bonus in our taxes. But even when we start paying the tax penalty as his income resumes, I calculate we’ll still come out on top in the long run. So OK, you still have to first take love into consideration. But if finance is also playing into your decision, Lange’s book should be at the top of your reading list.”
