Don't use words husband and wife...same-sex wedding reforms would axe terms from official documents
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 15 March 2012 | STEVE DOUGHTY

Reforms to allow same-sex marriage will see the words husband and wife removed from official forms, it was revealed last night.

Tax and benefits guidance and immigration documents must be rewritten so they no longer assume a married couple is a man and a woman.

And private companies will be told to overhaul paperwork and computer databases containing the words.

New versions of documents will‘replace references to husband and wife with the more neutral terms spouses and partners’.

The cost of the red tape revolution demanded by the ‘Equal Civil Marriage’ plans will run into millions, according to an official analysis published alongside the consultation paper.

References to go include direct mentions of husband and wife and phrases about couples ‘living together as husband and wife’. Forms and IT systems and guidance for Revenue and Customs staff will need to change, it added.

The removal of gender-specific language also has sweeping implications for marriage services.

If marriage law is reformed in line with the rewrite of red tape, then couples will be required at a civil wedding to pledge themselves to ‘my wedded partner’.

Why not change the name of the form from Marriage Certificate to Civil Union certificate so marriage in the civil realm (gay or straight) is a civil union.. Leave the term marriage to the church.

Because the whole purpose of this is to destroy marriage as we know it; and, to take the churchs down as well.

If this doesn't show they're not interested in getting married, they want to destroy traditional marriage, then what will?

Just wait until they tackle the issue of removing the words “male”, “female” from everything. That will be next. When I look at a patient’s names now it is sometimes difficult to tell what kind of a person it is and even when you talk to some on the phone it’s tough to tell. I’ve called many a “sir” caller “mam”.

Isn’t that why they prefer the gender-neutral term, “comrade”?

Do what you want with their documents but leave “real” marriage (man and woman) documents alone.

This is out of the Communist Manifesto-—to destroy the Natural Family-—destroy all biological connections so that women will give up their children to the state to raise-—(daycares/institutions/schools).

Destroy the Laws of Nature in the minds of young children (who control the allowed words, control ideas) and you can reinvent man-—with no God—no right and wrong—other than what the State declares.

Just read Brave New World to see their Utopia-—where the word “mother and father” are works which induce vomiting (because of the education/conditioning of the children).

Get your children out of public schools and be very careful of the ideas you permit them to be exposed to.....what they are exposed to will become normalized.

fine, strike God’s meaning of marriage from all government documents.

but, i can predict with some confidence that the statists will not be satisfied. they will then start making law from the bench banning us from using the word marriage in church ceremonies unless of course we would like our marriages to be un-official. i’m sure they will hand us a nice, civil, sanitized, government sanctioned ceremony to hold in our churchs, perfectly acceptable to the state and their “heterogenous” selection of lawful “marriage” groups.

you see, there is a slight loop-hole in obamacare, perhaps exempting the religiously self insured from it’s evil provisions. so now they realize they have to break down religion and the first amendment so they can fully implement obamacare to finish our enslavement. they will never stop.

Full speed ahead into the moral abyss. Like high diving into a pit of sewage. What these fiends don't realize is that the breakdown of the natural family and morality will also break apart every bit of morality anywhere and the entire social fabric. Even the leftists won't like the chaos, anarchy and destruction they themselves have caused.

Because the whole purpose of this is to destroy Western Civilization as we know it.

But you already kind of covered that in the second clause of your sentence.

Somehow, hearing Henny Youngman say: “Take my life partner.....please!” just doesn’t cut it.

How careless of me to forget - I’m sure I’ll get a call soon saying I need to go back for more retraining.

One thing I’ve noticed lately though is that more insurance carriers are just lumping all dependents into the broad category of “Family”, not spouse, child, etc.
