New Jersey Couple Finally Gets License

News quickie: Saundra and Alicia Heath-Toby, the New Jersey couple who sued the state for the right to marry, have finally been granted a civil union. The couple was one of seven to sue the state of New Jersey and help bring about the state's historic
civil unions law.

The couple, who have been together for eighteen years, say that "for us, marriage is not a political issue or an academic issue, [it] is a real issue about our lives."
