Civil Union law now in effect

About 40 minutes ago, U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman threw out the lawsuit that held up the ability for same-sex couples to receive the same rights and benefits as their heterosexual counterparts.

Break out the champagne glasses and start planning those ceremonies, folks! And of course, if you need chocolate, I know of a few places you can visit — here or here.

Congratulations!!

    This is awesome news…now all I need to do is land a husband! Would it be inappropriate to put a link to my gay.com profile here?

    I kid, I kid….but seriously, this has been a long time coming, so thanks to everyone who worked so hard to help make this a reality. (:
