New Hampshire Civil Unions

New Hampshire Legalizes same sex marriages.

New Hampshire is the fourth state to permit civil unions, but the first to do it without a court decision or the threat of one. New Hampshire Governor John Lynch signed the law on May, which grants same-sex couples the same rights, responsibilities and obligations as married male-female couples, but it does not call the union a marriage.

Yea New Hampshire! But on a more serious note why does it matter so much what we do and do not call a gay marriage?
