Federal marriage benefits? Not for everyone

FILE - This Jan. 11, 2013 file photo shows the Social Security Administration's main campus in Woodlawn, Md. Just like other married couples, same-sex couples are about to find out that federal benefits for being married might not be all they're cracked up to be. Social Security benefits for spouses can be generous, but only for couples with big disparities in their incomes. Taxes are a decidedly mixed bag, and there still a lot of unanswered questions for the Internal Revenue to address. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)
