Comptroller William Thompson issued a report today, titled Love Counts: The Economic Benefits of Marriage Equality for New York, which concludes that the City could reap $142 million in benefits over three years if same-sex marriage were legal here. That money would come from fees associated with the marriage license as well as money spent on honeymoons and other associated wedding expenses.


“Legalizing marriage for same-sex couples in New York would have impacts beyond allowing individuals to make the full legal commitments to their partners that opposite-sex couples take for granted,” Thompson said.



The full report can be found [here].
