North Carolina

Another place to tick off the ‘won’t be honeymooning there’ list.

This from

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.
