(p.263) Chapter 9 Domestic Partnership, Registered Partnership, and Marriage
Equality for Same-Sex Couples
University of Chicago Press

Comparative analysis shows that whereas most U.S. states provide same-sex couples with extensive parental rights and hardly regulate the relationship between the partners, some European countries provide comprehensive recognition of the couple's relationship but offer relatively few parental rights. This chapter compares the American and European models on the one hand and opposite-sex marriage on the other, in terms of the rights, benefits, and obligations each of the institutions provides.

Keywords:   domestic partnership, registered partnership, same-sex couples, parental rights, opposite-sex marriage, rights and benefits
