5 years later, 1st civil-unioned couple goes the way of Brad and Jen

by Jeremy Hooper

   The first couple to get civil-unioned in the United States, Carolyn Conrad and Kathleen Peterson (seen here in happier days), have announced that they are splitting up. The ladies were quasi-hitched in Vermont on July 1, 2000, just moments after the state became the first in the nation to allow such almost-marriages.

No word on who gets custody of the place in LGBT history books, though we hear they'll split all archival footnotes equally.
