RI Civil Unions Law Even Crappier Than Originally Thought

The Rhode Island civil unions: the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage supported them, very few gay couples have actually enter them and it turns out that they’re even more useless than originally thought.

The law does not exempt civil unionized couples from the RI estate tax like married couples, forbids the state from recognizing out of state gay marriages as RI law once allowed, and makes unclear the rights of civil unionized couples in the case of death and inheritance. Just another example of why separate is not equal.
