  • This is a very silly proposal, and a solution looking for a problem.

    Restructuring a legal system for individuals who are unable to exercise enough leverage to compel their other half to get married is absurd.

    If I like it, I'll put a ring on it. I don't want Parliament or a bewigged judge making that decision for me.

  • You either get married (with all that comes with that) or you do not.

    Many couples deliberately do not get married because they don't wish to be bound by the rules that apply if you do.

    The state ought to respect that freedom of choice.
