Florida Senate to Consider Domestic Partnership BillA bill which would allow gay couples to enter into “domestic partnerships,” with a view to extending some marital rights to same-sex couples, was filed in the Florida Senate on Wednesday.

Senator Eleanor Sobel filed the bill which, although it states it is not an attempt to bypass the constitutional amendment in Florida defining marriage as between one man and one woman, it would allow gay Floridians some rights towards marriage.

Any two people over the age of 18 would be allowed to enter into a “domestic partnership” under the law, reports TampaBay.com.
