  1. In the United States, due to the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), same-sex couples in civil unions in the U.S. do not have the 1,138 rights that a (different-sex) married couple has under federal law. Same-sex marriages are not recognized federally at all.
  2. It is significantly easier (shorter) to say "I'm married to (somebody)" than it is to say "I am civilly united with (somebody)".
