More Civil Union News

Post to Twitter

The Governor of Illinois signed that state’s civil union legislation into law yesterday. The law takes effect June 1. The copy of the legislation that I was able to find (and locating one was no easy task on the Illinois legislature’s web site) indicates that Illinois will recognize same-sex relationships solemnized in other jurisdictions (e.g., a same-sex marriage, civil union, or domestic partnership–but not a common law marriage) as an Illinois civil union.
