Hi Richard,
I'm a tax attorney in Sacramento. I, too, am watching the change in law carefully. I have advised my same-sex clients that the "non-owing" partner will become liable if they get married. I am sending them to family law attorneys to have pre-nuptial agreements drawn. I assume you are in L.A. Let me know if I can be of help to you with respect to tax issues.
