Rosie O'Donnell engaged - expects to get married over Christmas

Rosie O'Donnell engaged - expects to get married over Christmas
Chicago has been good to Rosie O'Donnell, she announced to her show audience last Friday that she's engaged!  CONGRATULATIONS to the both of you! Yep, she and partner Michelle Rounds will apparently be "tying the knot" during the Christmas break - I think that's wonderful.  But I have a feeling that she won't be doing it here in Illinois, she'll most likely be flying back to New York where same-sex couples now enjoy the benefit of marriage....here in Illinois we only have Civil Unions. So why doesn't she get married here, well quite frankly it's because Illinois only offers same-sex Civil Unions - not full marriage like they do in New York and six other states (Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington, DC).  What's the difference you ask between Civil Unions and Marriage?  A LOT!  Click through to read more about the differences between marriage and civil unions...
