Just saw this in the news. Same sex couples get ALL (that's right ALL), the same benefits as heterosexual marriages. The only difference is that on the certificate, the union is between party 1 and party 2 instead of bride and groom (this is because they still feel that marriage is between a man and a woman). It also said in the news that straight people CANNOT get Civil unions, which makes me very happy, cuz it makes civil unions OURS!!
On a side note, there was a small protest rally, but only 50 people attended!! (lmao at them)
