    Not really. As has been already pointed out, the hospital could have the exact same policy for married gay couples... it's against the law in both cases, but there's no real penalty so the hospital covers its ass. Whether civil unions or marriages, the remedy would be giving the law some teeth - punitive damages perhaps.

    sorry you must not have been following my posts, im not talking about this hospital.

    the fact remains civil unions and domestic partnerships are less when comparing them to marriage and some people dishonestly say they are equal or the same thing when it comes to RIGHTS because they are not.

    I said this way back in post 7

    OK, I see...

    Yes, I'm only commenting on the story in the OP. Its takeaway message is not (as others have perhaps implied) that civil unions and marriages don't have the same legal protections - rather, it illustrates that what the law says and how it works in the real world can sometimes be two very different things.

    no problem I figured you thought I was directly commenting on the OP.

    and I agree with your last statement 100% they very well can be different.

    Yep. They got a domestic partnership, which in the state of Nevada is supposed to give them the same rights as a married couple.
    This couple did what the law said they should do to fix this problem. The hospital is the one breaking the law.
