Wisconsin Supreme Court to Domestic Partnership Foes: Don’t Let the Door Hit Ya

So, one other piece of good news this week: “The state Supreme Court refused to take a case asking the court to strike down the state’s new domestic partnership law for same-sex couples. The law took effect in August, allowing gay couples to register with counties so they could get about 40 of the 150 rights afforded married couples, such as hospital visitation rights. Before the law took effect, Julaine Appling and others from Wisconsin Family Action asked the high court to strike down the law, saying it violated the state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage and substantially similar arrangements.” [MJS]

      Our relationships aren’t “domestic partnerships”. Our relationships are romantic and loving unions based on mutual sexual attraction.
