Britain plans for marriage equality

Prime Minister David Cameron has stressed he is a strong supporter of marriage equality, which will be introduced by the end of the current parliament in 2015 – in England and Wales.

“In each century parliament has acted, sometimes radically, to ensure marriage reflects our society, to keep it relevant and meaningful,” Culture Secretary Maria Miller told parliament.

“For me, extending marriage to same-sex couples will strengthen, not weaken, this vital institution, and the response I’m publishing today makes clear that we will enable same-sex couples to get married through a civil ceremony,” she said.
