Heterosexual couples could gain civil service rights

Tim Loughton MP’s private member’s bill outlining changes that would see heterosexual couples allowed to enter civil partnerships is expected to receive Government support when it gets its second reading in February. It would see straight couples who cohabit granted the same legal rights as those who are married. Sir Paul Coleridge, founder of the Marriage Foundation campaign group, endorsed Loughton’s plans. “What matters is that people make a decisive, truthful commitment to each other before they enter into a relationship which leads to children,” he said.
