Typo of the Day

Caught in the slot, in an article about gay marriage:

"Same-ex unions."

Is this when people get divorced and then remarry the same person? That could be a same-ex union.

I'd say it most likely refers to the union of two people who share an ex. For example:
Person A (male) marries and divorces person B (female). Person C (male) marries and divorces person B. When persons A and C marry, their marriage is both a same-sex union and a same-ex union.
