Straight couples are to be allowed to enter into civil partnerships instead of getting married, Theresa May reveals


United Kingdom

2 OCT 2018 —

Dear Equal Civil Partnerships community,

We are pleased to hear this news for equal partnerships, a campaign that we have supported in terms of equal relationships for all.

We are delighted to let you know that the Government has just announced its commitment to extend civil partnerships to all.

This is a really important step in the right direction, but we will only celebrate when legislation is agreed. The Government is still to confirm the date when the first different-sex civil partnership can take place, while it consults on the technical details.

So please help the Government understand just how popular extending civil partnerships would be. Tweet them directly with your own message or use the following:

“Great news that you plan to extend civil partnerships to all. We literally can’t wait. Please set your date to legislate, so we can set our dates to celebrate!” @theresa_may @PennyMordaunt @sajidjavid @EqualCPs #equalcivilpartnerships #equallove”

We are so nearly there. Change is coming.
