For the supporters of the marriage amendment in November's election, civil unions are not dead in Wisconsin like many of them had hoped. While the amendment did include civil unions, the debate goes on. From the Cap Times:

Young voters - particularly college students - tended to be overwhelmingly against the amendment, and heavy turnout on some UW campuses was credited with helping Democrats regain control of the state Senate.

"Everybody looks at this and feels it's just a matter of time. Young people clearly don't have the same" views as older voters, Doyle said. "It's a generational thing."

The fact that young people are much more supportive of civil unions and gay relationships in general means as time goes on, civil unions will likely be recognized in Wisconsin despite the wishes of those kicking and screaming into the modern era.
