Tor and Barb

Sun 26 Mar 2006 In: Weddings and Civil Unions View at Wayback View at NDHA

Tor Devereux and Barb Long (both 38) have been together seven years, and live in Dunedin with their two sons Russell (aged 4) and Tobias (aged 2). They combined their civil union with a naming ceremony for their children, which was held last year at the Otago University Staff Club with 100 friends and family members present. Was there a proposal? TOR: I guess there was a proposal of sorts! On the day of the final debate and vote on the Civil Union Bill in Parliament, Barb was in Wellington and I was at home in Dunedin but we were both listening to as much of the debate as we could. As soon as the result of the final vote was announced Barb texted me and said something like, "So, should we do it then?" I took that as a proposal! TOR - 26th March 2006
