Equal Civil Partnerships backed by The Times

The Times has published a Five Point Plan that they are campaigning for ‘to bolster family stability, end financial injustice and remove acrimony from divorce’.

The article focuses on the reforms needed, particularly in the area of divorce law, to creat a fairer system but takes in a range of issues to do with family law, finishing with the five point plan.

Point four is “Extending civil partnerships to heterosexuals so that they can have the same security as married couples should they wish. Civil partnerships are offered only to same-sex couples at present”.
