    Also please address questions to the author/party rather than the speaker.
    oops, sorry, I never really realised exactly how thinks worked just before now.

    Thanks for the reply.

    About the "hetero-" and "homo-", I disagree because people generally misunderstand what it menas.
    Like with "gay marriage" as opposed to "same-sex marriage", gay marriage tends to I've noticed make people think that the constituents of the marriage are exclusively gay, as opposed to things like bisexual.
    I think it's misleading.

    edit I'll clarify, misleading about the sexual orientations of the people in the marriage.

    I don't think the state really needs to make an allowance for bisexuals in marriage.

    I don't think the state should be intervening in marriage at all if I'm honest.

    I doubt you're being serious, but to confirm, are you?

    (P.S. I'm simply saying that it's less misleading to say same-sex marriage etc.)

    I'm being serious. I don't see the need when the intent is clear.

    But alas, if you can confirm you intend to Aye or Abstain, i'll change the wording.

    Good.

    I don't like prenups. Personally I would make them illegal but I don't care enough to do that.

    Feminism is about equality, society still isn't equal.
    Society will never be equal and anybody with a brain knows that. If things were about equality, and people cared so much, why are so few people, on either side, willing to actually do anything or join with "the other side" to actually fight for equality?

    To say that the fight needs stepping up would be like saying we needed to step up funding and support for the European theatre after Operations Varsity and Plunder.

    I'll say aye if you change the wording, for consistency.

    Aye, the fight against injustice is more important than the fight for equality. However, there are those that believe that the levels of inequality are unjust and are fighting to make society more equal. If that means me supporting David Cameron's plans to blind CVs then so be it, in fact I may intend to go further.

    Blinding CVs should, in theory, help at least a bit; incessantly ranting on the Internet about non issues, however, doesn't.

    Is that a real bill which is being reviewed by Parliament or just something on the Studentroom?

    The problem with an interpretive value is that under the current legislation courts have been quite happy to rape the (usually male) richer spouse. This is an inequality that i wish to address.
    Then issue guidance to courts, not binding legislation (the latter being wholly inappropriate).

    I don't see the need for this. It is a mutually agreed contract between two parties even if emotion may be involved.
    The question is capacity to agree. I'd argue that love can diminish capacity to a sufficient extent that it ought to fall under the existing rules of duress - a contract ought only be valid if the parties start on equal footing regarding bargaining capacity, and that cannot possibly the case where an unfair prenuptial agreement is signed.
