For those who are gay/lesbian/bi, do you think you would be likely to marry or consider marriage (or a 'civil partnership', I guess to use the correct term) at some point?

If i loved someone deep enough that i wanted to shout it to the world and celebrate our love... i would.

I dont particuarly see myself needing a piece of paper that dedicated myself to anyone for the rest of my life... just because...

...people change *shrug*

Maybe one day, certainly not any time soon

i think i would be very unlikely to go down that route, but if at any point i found myself with someone i was unquestionably going to spend the rest of my life with, i might consider it only on the grounds that if i didn't she might not get everything she should after i die. i dont know how things like pensions etc work and i dont have one anyway, but if i did then i would want her to be treated equally to any husband or wife and get her fair share of everything that is mine, and if having a civil partnership was the only way of acheiving that then thats what i would do.

No. Personally I don't see the point in any kind of marriage whether its gay straight, whatever. What does love have to do with the government?

I have never fancied getting married but was put off even more when I found out that it's a contract between you, your partner and the commonwealth. I assume (?) its the same sort of deal with the civil partnerships.

Me and my partner have discussed the idea of a simple blessing with no government involvement and maybe in the future its something I would consider but really I still don't see the point of it.

i would marry a guy if i loved him. but i prefer the idea of marrage with a girl and having children with the woman i marry. maybe thats conditioning but ive always wanted it that way

I think I'd be more likely to marry a woman than a man... And I'm straight!

Nah i tried it once, never again :D

i cant see why the gay marriage thing is such a big thing .......you fall in love with who you fall in love with
i cant stand labelling ...gay ,bi,straight,......we are all just people,,,,,,you fall in love with who ever abnd it should be your choice and be cool

Well..Belgium..had strict laws and prejudices against homosexuals,
lesbians,transsexuals etc..nowadays..there's a new law here..
holebi couples=homo's,lesbians,bisexuals..
can get married at the community hall..
not in church:eek:catolics here,you know..
my opinion..love is HOW you feel inside..
if people are happy as gays..let them be..it's their right..
same for lesbians..in my case..I stick to hetero..:harhar:
and I always will..there's still that social taboo..
it will never dissapear..people judge..other people..
and usually the ones who scream the most..
are just frustrated in society matters..

We are going to have a Civil Ceremony this year, The word 'register' alarms me though?

I think its more hard wired into the natural order of things. If one wants to reproduce a female is usually helpful!

Science moves faster than evolution :P

I'm marrying my other half for the legal reasons - so he can legally be my next of kin, and so I'm legally related to him. It means a lot to me.

And I would be having a civil ceremony, were it not for the fact my other half is an f to m transsexual and will be getting a gender recognition certificate, making him legally male :D

Handfasting, now that's more my cup of tea. This register thing, i dunno, perhaps i'm too much a conspiracy theorist? But this nanny state we live in, too many rules and regs, forms, cameras. Ugh
