At the beginning of October, the Times ran the numbers and reported that if you’re gay, the cost of settling down and raising a family will be somewhere between $28,595 and $211,993 more expensive than if you went the regular Dick and Jane route. Everything from preparing one’s taxes to having a child to getting health insurance for you and yours is more expensive if you’re gay. A hot mess to be sure. In the interest of drilling down further, the Times has launched a series on its Bucks blog to peel back the financial realities of being gay, starting with the high price of … gay divorce.
