Equal Love Petition

"We call on the government to end the twin bans on same-sex civil marriages and opposite-sex civil partnerships. In a democratic society, everyone should be equal before the law. This means opening up civil marriages and civil partnerships in register offices and other licensed premises to all couples, gay and heterosexual, without discrimination."

Please note that this petition must only be signed by residents of the United Kingdom.

  • Emma Winnell. I desperately want to see heterosexual civil partnerships introduced in the UK. I'm in a heterosexual relationship and have never been interested in marriage. For me marriage as a concept has all kinds of unwelcome cultural and religious baggage that I want no part of. I do however want our devotion to one another to be recognised legally. I want to be able to enter into a legally recognised union with the person I love so we can protect each other legally, financially and practically, without feeling obligated to sign up to the whole cultural/religious circus that normally accompanies it. I feel we should have the same rights as married couples.
  • [Name not displayed]. I now want to see legalisation of civil partnership for heterosexual couples, now that gay marriage has been legalised. I have no interest in marriage and will never be married due to the gender and cultural stereotypes and the religious history and oppression that is directly linked in with marriage. My main concern is that myself and my partner have no Next of Kin rights and I have no way of severing that tie with my only remaining, abusive family member.

  • Thomas Hazell. Love is love, and marriage is a way of declaring that love publicly. Who are we to deny this to anyone?
  • Alan French. I am a transgender man (female to male) in a heterosexual relationship, we are not interested in marriage however we would like to have a civil partnership. To me it seems arbitrary to restrict this only to same sex couples. I obtained a Gender Recognition Certificate after my surgeries but could have opted NOT to do so; in this case, despite my male appearance, my legal gender would have remained female and consequently I would have been able to enter into a civil partnership with my girlfriend.
  • Kelly Dempster. I am in a heterosexual relationship and wish to be in a civil partnership. I do not wish to marry and will remain as I am, offering me no rights or protection as a partner, if civil partnerships are not made legal for opposite sex couples. Equal rights should mean Equal.

  • Rachel Pearson. We celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary 2 days ago. If we'd been able to sign up to a civil partnership back in 1976, we'd have chosen to do that instead!

  • Daisy Allen. my mum is gay and i believe i should be allowed to have two mums!
  • Ashley Slatford. heterosexuality is not normal, it's just common.
  • [Name not displayed]. I have been living with my partner for 20 years. We have two daughters. We are atheists and as such are discriminated against with regard to our financial affairs and next of kin. If my partner died the repercussions on our family unit would be devastating both financially and the forced involvement of a next of kin not chosen by us. All this to deal with when the family unit are in distress. The way out of this mess is to marry - but we are atheists; would you force a Muslim to convert to CofE to gain financial and kin equality?
