UK; Gay marriage & too much government interfering
In the UK gay and lesbian couples cannot get married. Since 2005 they have been able to enter into a ‘civil partnership’ which includes all the same rights as marriage but with a separate name (showing distinction between the two).
As a matter of official party policy most of the main parties in the UK support gay marriage (Lib Dems, Conservative (Tory), Labour and Green support while UKIP doesn’t).
Despite the official line there are many MP’s in government from the Conservative party (Tory party) who oppose same-sex marriage and as they are the main party in power there could be a revolt over the issue.
The real issue is why does the government (any government) insist on interfering with peoples lives? Why can’t we do what we want to do? If two men or two women want to spend their lives together why is that any concern for the state?
Exactly the same can be said for abortion. If someone has an abortion, it doesn’t effect me, it’s the woman’s choice not the governments!
This kind of petty behaviour where governments dictate to us what we can and can’t do is ridiculous and it’s time it stopped!
