Equal civil partnerships are long overdue

Equal civil partnerships are long overdue

Please tell us your views on the Bill and explain why it will affect you.: The Equality Network campaigned for Equal Marriage for many years. Our clear view was that civil partnership should also be made equally available to couples regardless of their genders. Ideally that would have been done at the same time as equal marriage, but we welcome that the Scottish Government have now introduced the Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill to do this. We believe that there are many mixed-sex couples who are currently living together without the legal protections that marriage or civil partnership provides, and who do not want to marry, but would welcome being able to register a civil partnership. The rest of the UK already has equal civil partnership open to couples regardless of gender, and it is time Scotland did too!
