I find a failure in the USA system follows this logic. The nation is based on individual rights. Around a hundred years ago (about the time of suffrage laws) there started being special 'privileges' given to married couples. Two could file taxes independently or as a couple, whichever benefitted them most, decidely giving more of the burden to the single taxpayer. Now there is an effort to expand the definition of a couple to spread those privileges to a wider population of 'pairs'. This further debases the standing of singles. A country of individuals with rights is fast becoming a nation of pairs with privileges.
