Wisconsin residents Jonathan Garber & Derek Tyus, married 6/2/2007 in Ontario
American couples flocked to cities like Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver once same-sex marriage was legalized in 2005... and today many still make the trip in order to experience the wonderful feeling of legitimization inherent in such a declaration of vows. But there are other benefits as well: even if your home-state in America does not recognize your Canadian nuptials, the fact that you & your partner did enter into a legally binding relationship does show intentionality, with regard to future children or assets or other possible circumstances that may arise. And, when same-sex marriage is legalized across the United States, the fact that you and your spouse married once in Canada will in fact become recognized here as well!
