Civil Unions

There were 460 civil unions last year, of which 377 were same sex couples.

Some people have commented that the numbers are not very high, but the way I see it that is 920 NZers who have been able to have their relationships recognised – and for 754 of them they were unable to do so previously.

Plus there are people like me who plan to get married, not civil unioned, one day but am glad that civil union option exists for those who want to use it – especially those ineligible to marry.
