Video: Erica & Tevonda
Making the Case for Marraige in New Jersey
Erica and Tevonda Bradshaw, both 36, have been together more than four years. When Tevonda gave birth to their son, Erica went through a court adoption. She was investigated and fingerprinted, which she found extremely offensive. Because civil unions are so poorly understood, the couple has paid to execute many extra legal documents to protect their family.
