Domestic partnerships in Washington

Gay couples in Washington State began to register as domsestic partners today. According to the Associated Press, "couples that register as domestic partners receive enhanced rights, including hospital visitation, the ability to authorize autopsies and organ donations, and the sbility to inherit in the absence of a will."

'Enhanced rights' is good, but it's still not equal rights, which will only come with marriage.
