Marriage is unique
Throughout history and in virtually all human societies marriage has always been the union of a man and a woman. Marriage reflects the complementary natures of men and women. Although death and divorce may prevent it, the evidence shows that children do best with a married mother and father.
No need to redefine
Civil partnerships already provide all the legal benefits of marriage, so there's no need to redefine marriage. It's not discriminatory to support traditional marriage. Same-sex couples may choose to have a civil partnership but no one has the right to redefine marriage for the rest of us.
If marriage is redefined, those who believe in traditional marriage will be side-lined. People's careers could be harmed, couples seeking to adopt or foster could be excluded, and schools would inevitably have to teach the new definition to children. If marriage is redefined once, what is to stop it being redefined to allow polygamy?
People should not feel pressured to go along with same-sex marriage just because of political 'correctness'. They should be free to express their views. Government has launched a public consultation on proposals to redefine marriage. This provides an opportunity for members of the public to make their views known.
