Here's my thought, or question. What do they get now that they couldn't get with a civil union? Or, why couldn't they just bring civil unions up to the legal level of a marraige?
Also, are civil unions now abolished?
"Resist, we much. Weï»¿ must, and we much. About that, be committed."
If a civil union and a marriage were the same, there would be no sense in calling them by different names.
They have always been different, in that one is for opposite sex and the other is for same sex. And that difference would still exist if they made them otherwise equal (obviously).
And let me throw in that I assume opposite sexes can't get a civil union, as far as I know.
We don't call driver's licenses by different names based on the gender of the person getting the license.
I don't see much of a connection. A DL is for an individual, not for a couple. Doesn't really relate to my question anyway. I think it's pretty well established that a marriage and a civil union are different.
Yes, a driver's license is for an individual, and it shouldn't matter what gender that individual is.
Here is my question to you,what is so sacred about marriage that others can't call their union what they will?
Maybe for straight couples we'll call it marriage and for gay/lesbian couples we'll call it mawwage. :smileywink:
