520    Gay and lesbian couples have gained a lot of legal ground 
       in recent years. Although same-sex marriage is legal, it's
       important to stay up to speed on the laws governing 
       parentage, adoption, civil unions, and domestic 
       partnerships, which vary from state to state.  And if you 
       choose to remain unmarried, it's essential that you 
       protect your rights and define your relationship in the 
       eyes of the law.  This plain-English guide shows you how 
       to do it.
