That is one of the reason there's so much push on the part of the gay community. Some of it is wanting full equal recognition, but mostly it is equal protection under the law. In states that do no gay marriage they can still get married by a church, it would be impossible for a state to outlaw that. However they aren't legally recognized as a joint person as married couples are and thus can't file a married tax return (which isn't that useful), don't have death rights, and so on.
Pretty much everything can be worked around. I mean you can specify whoever you want as your decision maker in a living will, you can sign property contracts to split ownership and so on. However it isn't all automatic as it is with a marriage.
