Well, this sounds like good news: NRP and Shinui are making kissy-noises. Unfortunately, it sounds like they are going to fail to inaugurate a form of civil marriage, and instead inaugurate a form of official shacking up. So the secular-religious divide is "bridged" by institutionalizing a radical difference in secular and religious mores: religious marry, secularists just register for mortgage benefits. But I guess I'll wait to hear more details before carping seriously. Meanwhile, it is indeed, no sarcasm, good news if these two parties can join together in Sharon's government. Likud-Shinui-NRP is a majority; Sharon doesn't need anyone else. Which means whatever guidelines emerge from these three may actually mean something.
