tardtasticx:bazzer:tardtasticx: Well why do straight people get married? its because they can.
But there's not any real difference between a "marriage" and a "civil union". Husband/wife tags are more or less social conventions. I don't believe there are any laws that prohibit the use of "husband" for civil union partners.
My wife and I were quite happy without being married until one day we decided we would do it. If "marriage" hadn't been an option to us, we would have quite happily had a civil union. Even if we had had a civil union (and we thought about it) there's not really any reason anyone at our wedding would have known the difference. I would still probably have told people we got married and that she is my wife, because functionally there's no difference.
yeh but you would no doubt find it annoying if you finally wanted to get married but discovered you couldnt, yet the people next door could simply because they like the opposite gender?
Like I said, I'd just get a civil union and get on with my life. At least that's what I think I'd do, no way to know for sure.
It's not as if homosexuals have to ride in the back of the bus. I think you'll find discimination is everywhere, it's not right but some things don't really warrant your time or worry, I think.
