Hi Kat, you may find it interesting that Somerville, MA now recognizes domestic partnerships that can be platonic and be among multiple people (not just 2). It's an interesting concept, but for this to be fair, the benefits payments need to be carefully structured so that people in partnerships pay their fair share and are not subsidized by single people.
