New Jersey civil unions law in effect now and New Jersey will recognize other jurisdictions

Story here about the law taking effect today and about New Jersey's signaling that it will recognize civil unions and gay marriages from other jurisdictions here and here. This topic is not something I have followed closely. Indiana law does not recognize common law marriages, civil unions or palimony. Instead, Hoosiers have decided they need a constitutional amendment restricting how people arrange their intimate relations. One that poses for heterosexual couples the potential for great harm. See here for more of an explanation.

I hope this will be as close a political rant I put on this blog.
