My partner and I qualify to register as domestic partners in a few different states. As I understand it, states with "domestic partnership" laws also have reciprocity agreements with other states that provide domestic partnership benefits. Thus, like marriage, it doesn't matter where you register. It just matters where you live (to receive the benefit of the registry). So, would there be any advantage or disadvantage (legally) in registering in one state over another? I DO realize that you only receive the domestic partnership benefits of the state you are living in (assuming they have them) vs. the state you originally registered. I'm just curious as to whether or not I'm missing something or if there is a legal complication that I'm not seeing.
