Duluth to offer domestic partner certificates

It’s not the same as gay marriage, but next month Duluth couples will be able to apply for domestic partnership certificates.

The city council approved the measure on a 5-3 vote Monday night, says the Duluth News Tribune. Supporters say it will now be easier for couples to get benefits from employers that provide them to domestic partners. Minneapolis has a similar program.

The certificates wouldn’t just be for gays and lesbians, officials said.

The certificates will cost $25.
