More than 1,000 couples -- 1,002, to be exact -- have registered as domestic partners in Nevada since the law establishing domestic partnerships took effect this month.
The figure, reported Monday, includes more than 700 couples who preregistered to receive their certificates October 1, the day the law took effect, according to the Associated Press.
“Secretary of State Ross Miller on Monday said there's been a ‘steady stream’ of registrations since then,” reported the AP.
The domestic-partnership law grants cohabiting couples, gay or straight, limited rights not equal to marriage, such as estate planning and hospital visitation benefits.
