Now there is the good news that there is the possibility of civil unions for LGBTQ couples! The Senate and House in Hawaii have passed legislation, and now await the Republican governor's signature.
So this is where we are in terms of the places where there are civil partnerships and marriage for all:
f approved, Hawaii will become one of six states – along with California, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington – to grant essentially all the rights of marriage to same-sex couples without authorizing marriage itself.
Five other states and the District of Columbia permit same-sex marriage: Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Prayin' for you Hawaii...
