A domestic partnership is a committed relationship of two adults of any sexual orientation. Since 1993, Marin has recognized these throughout the County. In 2000, the State of California allowed registration of Domestic Partnerships.

Because the Marin ordinance only recognizes the partnership within the County, domestic partners that fit the State qualifications should register with the State instead of just Marin County, so that their partnership is recognized throughout California.
