    Civil partnerships: Law to change for mixed-sex couples.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 02 Oct 2018, 2:55 pm

    All couples in England and Wales will be able to choose to have a civil partnership rather than get married, Theresa May has announced.

    The move will give mixed-sex couples and their families the option of greater security, the government said.

    And it will address the "imbalance" that allows same-sex couples to choose between a civil partnership or marriage - a choice denied to mixed-sex couples.

    The current system was found in June to be in breach of European law.

    Read more on this proposal in The BBC News HERE




    This looks like the Tories have done something that is just basic common sense.

    After same sex couples were allowed civil marriages it had to come that heterosexual couples should have the same benefit.

    What do the good people of ROB think of this ?

    I thought I was reading that wrongly until I realised that heterosexual couples did not have the same rights as homosexual couples.

    Seems silly to me.

    Yes, it was really silly, as while the homosexual partners now get all of the security they might want, it has to follow that the hetero' couples should have the same security.

    I looked into this recently and I was glad to find that hetero couples were going to receive all of the benefits that same sex couples do.

    Why not, I ask.
