Meet The First Couple In Illinois To Get Civil Unionized

THE SHOT – Chicago couple Lakeesha Harris and Janean Watkins take a snapshot as the first couple to get a civil union license at the Cook County Clerk’s office. Illinois is the sixth state to allows civil unions or their equivalent. Hawaii and Delaware have both passed civil union laws that have not yet been enacted.

We bet they can’t wait to start destroying the institute of marriage helping the terrorists win practicing Babylonian witchcraft celebrating their love with their friends and family. Congrats ladies—have one on us!

    Congratulations and here is hoping that they will soon be able to legally marry in their home state too!

    You know, I think the anti-gay bigots give us too much credit. Heterosexuals are doing a fine job all on their own in destroying marriage. They don’t need our help at all.

    They’re not exactly the first to get a civil union; just the first to get the license. They can’t do anything with it until tomorrow, and others may beat them.

    Nonetheless… congratu… no, wait, you’re not supposed to say that to brides. Well, whatever you *are* supposed to say, I hope it sticks!
