A Money Planning Tool for Gay Couples

NerdWallet — a great site to compare credit cards that we’ve written about before — just launched a new money planning tool for same-sex couples. Just in time for Pride Month! As they note: “A heterosexual couple that spends $40 for a marriage license is automatically granted access to the 1,138 rights accorded by the Federal government through marriage.
