1000 Civil Unions

Postby xsfat » Wed Oct 03, 2007 5:53 pm

This section needs a new topic...

New Zealand Labour Party Press Release
http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA0710/S00001.htm
An important milestone has been reached with the registration of the 1000th civil union.

1000 New Zealand couples have become civil union partners since April 2005. One in five of the 1000 civil unions have been between a man and a woman, and more lesbian than gay couples have had a civil union. Around 45, 000 marriages have been registered in the same period.

Tim Barnett has a message for MPs such as John Key and Bill English who opposed the introduction of civil unions: “This law recognised the reality of New Zealand relationships. It was opposed in raw and prejudiced ways. It has turned out to be a comprehensive success."

Is it possible to be married and have a civil union at the same time... and do you get your partners passport rights with a civil union?

Just trying to max my many continent residence capabilities here.

I say hurl. If you blow chunks and she comes back, she's yours. But if you spew and she bolts, then it was never meant to be.

I think it depends on the country. Obviously if a country doesn't recognise civil unions or same sex unions, you're not going to get shit.

Nope, only one or the other.
