Marriage is a good thing -- so say millions of married people and the government, who encourages marriage through tax breaks and other financial incentives. Even landlords might prefer married couples, thinking their relationship and financial status will be more stable.
But marriage isn't for everyone, and even those who might plan to get married may not be married yet. And incentives for marriage can turn into punishments for unmarried couples. So what happens when landlords refuse to rent to unmarried couples? Do they have any legal recourse?
