A photograph from a birthday party shows Ben Rogers, at left, and his husband Brian Thompson in their Chicago home on Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015. The couple married on Aug. 9, 2014.
In addition to being a tax lawyer, Thompson is a certified financial planner with a significant sideline in doing planning for gay couples. When Illinois same sex marriage went legal last year, he married Ben Rogers who is a librarian in the Chicago Public Schools.
