Hawaii Approves Civil Unions for Same-Sex Couples
Matt | On 17, Feb 2011
On Wednesday, Hawaii joined five other states and the District of Columbia in allowing civil unions for same-sex couples.
The Hawaii Senate approved the measure by a vote of 18-5. The bill will now go to Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s desk for signature into law.
Supporters of the vote packed the Hawaii Statehouse to learn of the bill’s outcome. They cheered when they learned of its passage.
New Jersey is another state, that like Hawaii, offers civil unions but not a full marriage license to homosexual couples.
And guess what … The sky hasn’t fallen in any of the seven states or D.C. where they recognize gay marriage or civil unions. Thus proving a whole lotta people’s points that we have much bigger fish to fry than legislating who shouldn’t love whom.
