Facebook Adds ‘In A Civil Union’ And ‘In A Domestic Partnership’ Option To Relationship Statuses

They may not be legal where many of you live, but on Facebook at least you can now list yourself as “in a civil union” or “in a domestic partnership.”

“This has been a highly requested feature from users,” says a Facebook rep. “We want to provide options for people to genuinely and authentically reflect their relationships on Facebook.”

There’s still no “in a throuple” option, though for some of you “It’s Complicated” will remain the most fitting option.

      How long before they add “Abusive”?

      They should add: “In a hold pattern till those mutha-f*ckin fascist breeders stop violating my god-damn human rights using their genocidal fictitious religion as an excuse”

      Is anyone actually gonna use this though?

      I mean do they really want a daily reminder that they’re seperate but equal?

      If I were civilly union’d, and actually had a Facebook page, I’d just put ‘married’ and say fuck da police.

      I’ve seen a lot of my FB friends using it to raise awareness for marriage equality.

      The article is false. I live in New Zealand, and we have had civil unions legal nationwide before Facebook was founded, and there is no option showing up for me.

      It should read “some countries get the added features.”

      My friends in Australia have access to these options which is stupid considering you can’t get a civil union or a domestic partnership in that country. Facebook fail.
