Wallet-sized civil union, marriage certificates unveiled
Same sex couples can now carry around proof of their civil union in their wallet.
Cook County Clerk David Orr made the announcement Thursday.
The legal, embossed certificates are available for anyone married or civilly united couples- since they often times have two different surnames.
They’re $15, which is the same price as a standard-size certificate.
The clerk’s office says the card will be handy for same sex couples to show proof of their union at places like the bank, gym, or hospital.
