This week, Knoxville became the second Tennessee town to offer domestic partner benefits to city employees.

In August, the suburb of Collegedale near Chatanooga began offering such benefits to domestic partners. Knoxville is the first major Tennessee city to do so.

City employees with domestic partners, regardless of sexual orientation, would be required to prove their relationship status through financial documents and a signed affadavit of commitment.
