Civil partnerships for heterosexual couples?

Four heterosexual couples are to go to the European Court of Human Rights to argue that the UK Government is discriminating by restricting the right to enter into a civil partnership to homosexual couples, reports the Telegraph.

The four couples have all tried to apply for a civil partnership at their local registry offices, but have been turned down because they are not same-sex couples.

The action is being supported by a number of gay rights campaigners, who would like to see an amendment added to the recently published Same-Sex Marriage Bill to open up civil partnerships to mixed-sex couples.
