In the interests of equality for LGBT / fluid or whatever, Civil partnerships it would seem are not an option for heterosexual couples.

Civil partnerships confer certain "rights" similar to a marriage, but without being "married".

So... I've been with my "Mrs" for let's just say quite a long time...

But we chose not to get married , however a Civil partnership isn't an option because... we are a man and a woman, not the same sex. :sad:

This couple are going through the courts to put that right..

Straight and no need to shout about it... :huray: (he said shouting....)

Didn't a couple try and do the same thing recently and failed?

Same couple I think. Just taking it to the next highest court.

Are there tax advantages or other benifits for a couple in a civil partnership that aren't available for a married couple? If there's no advantage I really can't see the point . Almost ironic when one considers the struggle there has been for same sex couples to have the right to marriage.

Yes, a civil partnership gives you more rights than co-habiting

That much I had assumed , that a couple in a civil partnership have rights that a couple just living together don't but wonder what the advantage over marriage is.
As an aside personally I don't like the term partner when wife or husband is referred to. Partner to me conveys the image of a business relationship rather than one built on emotion.

Civil partnership should give all the same right as marriage, it was meant as a compromise but I thought it would be defunct now. The difference is really in the wording, there is a strong religious connotation to the word "marriage" which is distasteful for some.

Can civil partnerships be dissolved easier than a marriage can go through a divorce? Understand religious argument but we are married and just ignore that aspect .

You might ignore it, but many do not like that terminology and the way the church uses it for their own propoganda.

My ex used to announce, whenever anyone introduced someone as their 'partner' - "oh, you're into Scottish Dancing then...."

:roll:

Probably is different in Scotchland... all the blokes wear skirts up there apparently. :hiding:

Still a "marriage" and a "wedding" though. Wouldn't like it for myself.

I know what you mean , I probably wouldn't be totally sure . Even though both of us are at best agnostic we were married in a church , I have several friends who are in pretty much the same situation , we all just ignore the religious nonsense . I think what I don't really get is just what is the difference between a humanist marriage and a civil partnership. :dunno:
