Is anyone legally getting married or just having a civil union? Does your state allow same sex marriage?
We live in RI but also live about 8 minutes away from MA, so we are getting married at a hall/restaurant up there. It’s a legal wedding, but so many people are asking if it’s just a civil union.

sorry ahead of time blackberry will not let me insert caps. we are getting our licence and having a city hall ceremony in connecticut. we live in new york and our marriage will be recognized there. we decided that it was best to get the legal stuff out of the way in ct and to have another ceremony and reception in front of friends and family.

We got legally married in Massachusetts, but had a large reception back in DC (which did not have same-sex marriage at the time). A few months after our wedding, the Attorney General of Maryland (our home state) opined that Maryland recognizes same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.

We are getting married in IL and civil unions become actually legal here June 1, 2011. We are calling it a marriage/wedding. As it is both. We are being legally bound to each other in every way imaginable. I would love for gay marriage to be allowed here….but seeing as how IL is party comprised of closed-minded fools who unfortunately have the right to vote….I’ll take what they are comfortable with to begin with. I’m not even sure what we have to do to become “Unionized” yet but will let you know after 6/1!

We live in Georgia, so we aren’t having a legal ceremony, but we are still calling it a wedding/marriage. We’ve talked about going to DC to get a license, but it’s not like it would really do us any good. We may just wait for it to be more universally legal.

We’re getting legally wed in D.C. and live in Virginia where it won’t do us any good, but we’re excited to be legally wed and happy to spend our wedding $$$ in a place where our wedding is recognized!
