how many years would it take?
would it ever be?
i ask this because the main reason civil unions and domestic partnerships are crap is because if one is intellectually honest thay arent a compromise at all.
and its because they arent equal in rights or benefits nor does the law find them to be as concrete or as binding.
examples, people have had civil unions and domestic partnerships and had their rights to kids, property, money etc over turned by family at a much more successful right than if one was married.
