more CUB select committee rubbish
"I want this Government to say my life with this man means something,” one submitter said. "Give me the chance, the very same you guys have. If he dies after 30 years together, I can still be excluded by his family for funeral arrangements."
Um, if the Relationships Bill goes through, but the Civil Union Bill doesn't, partners of a relationship will be legal next of kin and will not be excluded by family, so why use that argument in support of the Civil Union Bill. It is dishonest as saying civil unions will destroy marriage. Divorce laws have destroyed marriage way more than civil unions ever will.
