Report: Scant number of CT's gays have gotten quasi-hitched

by Jeremy Hooper

   Reports coming out of Connecticut indicate that very few of the state's same-sex couples are taking advantage of the newly enacted law allowing for the 'almost marriage, but not quite, but it's still something, though it's not matrimony, so don't call it that' practice of civil unions.

Relatedly, we hear that Connecticut's gays also wouldn't vote if they had to do so at an alternate location, wouldn't adopt if they were forced to refer to their child as "acquired descendant," and wouldn't support free speech if it were restricted for those who "sound too fruity."

Few apply for civil unions in first month they're legal [Norwich Bulletin]
