CIVIL UNIONS: A LOVE STORY imagines a world in which marriage doesn't exist. For anyone. Young couples, dewy-eyed teens and seasoned veterans anxiously await and reflect upon the most meaningful commitment of their lives: their civil unions. It's a pretty awkward world. In these volatile times, this satiric piece sends the message that gay couples deserve the right to be just as naive, corny, impetuous and bitter about their love-lives as straight couples are. In short, they deserve the right to marry.
