Brits Beginning to Abandon Civil Partnerships

Either civil partnerships just don’t have the luster they once did when they arrived in December 2005, or we’ve finally reached peak match among eligible same-sex couples: Last year’s 6,281 gay couples to enter unions is a 12 percent decline from 2008.

      Well of course this is going to happen. There was a backlog of people who’d been waiting, so there was a rush. Now the numbers are equalising. That’s just common sense.

      OR they’re getting ready for the real deal to occur.

      Both reasons above would appear to be valid.

      yet another epic reporting fail by Queerty.

      Actually, this piece echoes the very right wing Telegraph newspaper in the UK.

      Could the hopeless interns employed by Queerty look up the difference between genuine iconoclastic blogging and the merely un-informed sniping that insults their audience?

      Hard to have a fun night out at the clubs when the guy you brought home is talking about a civil union in the morning. The fun for many gays is going out and finding someone new. This is part of the fun of gay culture and is constantly referenced in gay movies and media. Those who wanted a civil union have one and the vast majority obviously do not. This isn’t news at all.
