Beginning with Denmark in 1989, civil unions under one name or another have been established by law in several, mostly developed, countries in order to provide legal recognition of relationships formed by unmarried same-sex couples and to afford them rights, benefits, tax breaks, and responsibilities similar or identical to those of legally married couples.

In Brazil, civil unions were first created for opposite-sex couples in 2002, and then expanded to include same-sex unions through judicial decision nine years later.

Spiritual Singles was originally founded in 1998 and launched on the Internet in 2000 by owner/founder Jill Crosby.

We have experienced over 16 years of online dating evolution and are happy to say that we are the largest, exclusively conscious dating site on the Internet.

Spiritual Singles has provided the online spiritual dating venue for hundreds of singles to find their soul mates, life partners and twin flames for more than a decade.

Some success story couples originally lived in the same city, but tell us that they NEVER WOULD HAVE MET WITHOUT SPIRITUAL SINGLES.

The exact level of rights, benefits, obligations, and responsibilities also varies, depending on the laws of a particular country.

Some jurisdictions allow same-sex couples to adopt, while others forbid them to do so, or allow adoption only in specified circumstances.

When our "singles" become "couples" the energy of two is much more powerful than one and they oftentimes continue on to do great work for the world together.
