We're not sure. If you know, please let send us a tip...



They didn`t call it marriage, although you can call it anything you want. The one thing you cannot mention is God, that is absolutely verboten. I suppose I`m a bit mean-spirited, but I really can`t see why the government couldn`t just say gay people can get married - that would have been true equality and so much simpler. But that hasn`t been done because they couldn`t face the furore. So they`ve passed a law that is not available to straight people - straight people cannot have a civil partnership, they have to get married - extraordinary.
