I had heard of it, and I think that's pretty cool. I'm sure it won't stand, but maybe it will start some legal battles or something.

I just saw the news story on CNN. As Tonberry said, it's not likely to stand, but I thought it was a move in the right direction. It draws more light to different relationship choices than some may be aware of, so that's a good thing in my book.

What gets to me is how the Church is outraged by it when it has nothing to do with them since it's not even a religious union anyways.

The public notary who accepted their union, said the man and two women should be entitled to family rights. Read on.. Three-way civil union challenges definition of marriage, family
