Another place to tick off the ‘won’t be honeymooning there’ list.
This from jezebel.com:
Voters in North Carolina today did as was predicted and voted in favor of Amendment 1, which bans same-sex marriage and civil unions in the state’s constitution. Gay marriage is already legally forbidden in North Carolina, but this will enshrine in the constitution the following choice language,
[M]arriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.
This clearly rules out same-sex legal partnerships of any kind, but opponents of the amendment also pointed out that it will affect the ability of same-sex partners to get health insurance and could also jeopardize domestic violence protections which are currently afforded to unmarried couples.
There’s nothing more to say about this. So sad.
