The Orlando City Council has voted unanimously to enact a domestic partnership registry, becoming the first city in Central Florida “to grant gay couples some of the rights that come with marriage.” In 30 days, unmarried couples “will be able to record their relationship in a government database for a $30 fee” and will be able to visit each other in hospitals, make health care decisions and funeral arrangements.
