Is there a list of legal rights/benefits accorded to same-sex

This answer was rated:

Is there a list of legal rights/benefits accorded to same-sex married couple in Connecticut?
According to the CT law regarding same sex unions, a same sex couple has the same rights as a married heterosexual couple. The CT law states that the same sex marriage grants “all the same benefits, protections and responsibilities under law… as are granted spouses in a marriage.” This means, the right to inherit from the spouse, the right to share equitably in all property coming into existence during the marriage, the right to have children and share custody of those children, the right to have insurance under the spouse's insurance as a spouse, to own property as joint tenants in common and any other right a regular married couple would have under CT statute Sec. 46b-37. Also see: Chapter 815 in general regarding marriage as all of those laws apply to same sex marriages as well as heterosexual marriages.
