Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Anyhow, we have the monogamous marriage situation already, & have had since 2004, only it's called Civil Partnership. All this thread concerns really is the question of whether to recognise its equivalence by actually calling it 'marriage', to which some disproportionately influential organisations like the church have certain to me unaccountable objections. All these other health/lifestyle-encouragement &c things we are going on about here are simply a rehash of all the arguments everyone went over 8 years ago when the Civ Ps were established in law.
