Civil Partnership Act (Amendment) 2017, TSR Liberal Party



Civil Partnership Act (Amendment) 2017
This Bill seeks to allow heterosexual couples to enter civil partnerships




1. Amendments to the Civil Partnership Act 2004
(1) Section (1)(a) is to be amended to –
(a) A civil partnership is a relationship between two people—

2. Repeals
(1) Subsection (1)(a) is to be repealed from the following sections –
(a) Section 3
(b) Section 86
(c) Section 138

3. Extent, Commencement and Short Title
(1) This Act extends to the United Kingdom
(2) This Act may be cited as the Civil Partnership (Amendment) Act 2017
(3) This Act will come into force the day it is passed

Notes
There is no substantial enough reason for heterosexual couples to be denied the possibility of a civil partnership. The bill negates the peculiar situation we find ourselves in; that homosexual couples can enter marriages or civil partnerships whereas heterosexual couples are barred the possibility of opting for a civil partnership.

Aye, as someone who backs gay marriage it would be hypocritical of me not to back straight civil partnerships.

Why not just back our bill instead, that abolishes all civil partnerships as obsolete rather than create two tiers of marriage and more bureaucracy?

Just change the Bill to abolish marriage instead, you'd get at least two more votes.

Then you run the risk of removing an option that people would rather opt for. This bill is much more sensible. Straightens the law while also giving the people what they want.

Because I think there's no harm in individual couples having more than one option with regard to how they define their formalised relationship. Some people don't like the traditional connotations associated with marriage but still want to have something to set their relationship in stone, and that's fine.

Will you second my bill allowing death to the infidels?
