Tampa considers broadening domestic partnership recognition

Unmarried couples involved in long-term committed relationships face unique challenges. While marriage provides couples with certain legal protections and benefits when it comes to family law, including hospital visitation and access to children, unmarried domestic partners are not automatically afforded the same rights.
