Equalise marriage - "Number 10" website petition

Equal yet separate? Marriage and Civil Partnerships should be open regardless of gender.

DELGA welcomes a petition on the "10 Downing Street" petition website calling for Civil Partnerships and Marriage to both be made open to any consenting couple rather than limited by gender.

The petition reads, "We ask the Prime Minister to bring in equality for all British citizens regardless of sexual orientation with regards to Marriage. This means extending the rights of same sex couples to become legally married as is legal in Canada, Belgium, 5 states of the USA, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Spain and South Africa. Civil Partnerships should also be open to heterosexual couples who do not necessarily want to get married.

Equal but different is NOT equality. Love is Love."
