What options, legal and otherwise, do my friends have to hold somebody accountable for this gross mismanagement? [more inside]

Legal to require race/ethnicity information of employees?

Is it legal for employers (specifically schools and government employees) to require race and ethnicity to be reported? It was my understanding that providing such information was always voluntary, but a friend who works for a high school just told me he was required to provide the information, and that if he didn't self report it, the school was required to report it based on what other employees thought. Is that legal? When did it become legal to require information that was previously required to be voluntary only?

What are the legal obligations of marriage in NY, US?

Is there a clear outline anywhere of the legal obligations of marriage? I haven't been able to find anything online. This can be either for New York state or the US in general. I would like to know what I am legally agreeing to before getting wrapped up in the romantic decision. I am not looking for the legal benefits of marriage, or for divorce law: I want to know what legal contract I'd be signing before I start the whole process. I'd prefer resources as opposed to anecdotal advice. Thank you.
