The New Marriage-Lite Ceremony From Bloomberg’s New York City

The Big Apple (does anyone even say that anymore?) has been letting you gays register as domestic partners for nearly two decades. But next month, even without state recognition of same-sex marriage, the City Clerk’s office is going to begin letting you get fake married!

The fun begins June 3, when all five boroughs will begin offering “marriage-like ceremonies” to gay couples. But we recommend “the recently revamped $12 million Manhattan marriage office at 141 Worth St., just north of City Hall,” because hey, if the build it, we should come.
