Gay marriage instead of civil partnership

Comment 1st July 2010

I am a 26 year old woman, all I want is a wedding with my partner with big white dresses, flowers, the whole shebang, the same as any other 26 year old woman I would imagine. The problem is my partner is also a woman so we are not permitted the simple right to get married, we may only have a civil partnership, I don't want to introduce her to the world as my civil partner, I want the right to call her my wife and be afforded the same liberties and rights as my straight counterparts. I'm not someone who screams from the rooftops or marches on Whitehall, I just feel very let down that we could travel to Spain, probably the most catholic country in Europe, and have the wedding but our country for which we work hard and contribute alot will not recognise our status. Lets not have one kind of fair for one group and another for another group, if the limitation was set by skin colour or hair colour there would be wars over it.

Why does this matter?

Because it affects every day of my life that I can not be married to the person I love more than anyone in this world.
