Goin' to Connecticut and we're gonna get civil unioned

by Jeremy Hooper

    This Saturday (Oct. 1), Connecticut will become the second U.S. state to almost kinda-sorta let gays get close to hitched nearly, when they begin offering civil unions to same-sex duos. Keeping with the official tone of the quasi-nuptials, CT gay couples will follow their unions with honeymoon-like vacations known as "Life companion excursions with a romantic intent."

At a conference this weekend to discuss the "more or less marriages," it was reportedly suggested that justices of the peace use the terms "man" and "woman" instead of "husband" and "wife" when referring to the couples, and that the word "wed" should be replaced with the term "joined." Though annoying that any sort of jargon alterations are necessary, we'll consider civilly joining in on the "close to wedded" fun as long as the "gifts" stay "plentiful" and the "bar" remains "open."
