Which states have gender neutral marriage certificates?

I'm non-binary, and she's binary trans. Neither of us have done anything to medically or therapeutically transition and probably won't be any time soon. We were both born and currently live in Tennessee, so even if we did medically transition, I'm pretty sure we're out of luck when it comes to changing our birth certificates. It would be ideal to have a marriage license that uses gender neutral terms like "partner" or "spouse."

Are there any states which have gender neutral marriage certificate language?


My boyfriend doesn't want a legal marriage. What can I do to make him reconsider?

My boyfriend has major trust issues from infidelity in his previous marriage. He made it abundantly clear during the early stages of our relationship that he never wanted to remarry. However, he knew that marriage was a must for me. He doesn't want to legally be tied to someone. And I simply don't understand how to compromise on this one. What happens when we have kids? What happens when one of us is in the hospital? I'm so lost and confused and don't know how to meet in the middle.
