No Such Thing As A "Civil Wedding"!
Date: January 03, 2006 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Ceremonies & Industry News & Legal Matters

Pamala McDougall of Inverkeilor, Angus writes to the Scotsman in order to clear up a Wedding misnomer:

I would like to point out that there is no such thing as a "civil wedding" (Family Announcements, 2 January). Please use the correct term, "civil partnership", for announcements of same-sex registrations. I wish the media would realise that "wedding" and "marriage" describe the legal and/or religious ceremonies for couples of the opposite sex.

She goes on to say

I am fully supportive of civil partnerships and think it right committed homosexual couples should be recognised in law, but if or until the law is changed, let's stick to the facts.

It's good to start the new year on the right footing.
