Thousands of gay and lesbian domestic partners who have not married or legally dissolved their unions by the end of June will have their relationships automatically converted to marriage — courtesy of the state.
It’s the final piece of the state’s same-sex marriage law — a provision about which many couples are apparently unaware and one sure to trigger some uncomfortable conversations.
Those being plunged into matrimony will no doubt include couples who simply hadn’t given it much thought.
Or there will be those who broke up in the years since they registered as domestic partners, some of them now married — illegally — to other people.
Hey, you asked for it.
