"Apparently the civil union law gave us all the rights of marriage, except the ones we really need." -- Timothy Zimmer, New Jersey Civil Union Law Victim, quoted in a New York Times article about the failures of civil union laws in New Jersey and Connecticut.

"We said we're going to have a civil union, and one said, 'Oh, is that some kind of business dinner?' " [Felice Londa, an Elizabethtown, New Jersey, attorney] recalled the [wedding dress] saleswoman saying. "Nobody gets it."

Be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.
