In Chile, Proposal for Civil Unions

 Chile’s conservative president proposed civil unions legislation Tuesday that would give unmarried partners many of the rights now enjoyed only by married couples in the South American nation.Gays and lesbians lauded Sebastian Pinera’s signature on the proposal that he is sending to Congress as a big step toward equality.But the leaders of Pinera’s center-right coalition were so upset that they refused to attend the signing ceremony.Chile only legalized divorce in 2004, which is one reason why about 2 million people live together without legal recognition in the socially conservative country. Click the link to read the entire article on EDGE: http://www.edgeonthenet.com/news/international/news//123198/in_chile,_proposal_for_civil_unions
