    Yep, sorry. That is the correct spelling: Andersen

    So few people want to get married over here nowadays that it is a good thing some same-sex couples prefer to, or the institution might well die out!

    I'd say they are a little better than we are here in the US since at least they are talking about a plan for national recognition, whereas we are still doing it piecemeal.
    NI is different. Polls show that they'll depend on the tilt of demography to the Catholic minority to get gay marriage passed up there, if you can believe that.

    Among those surveyed, less than half of those calling themselves Protestant (45%) were in support of same-sex marriage while the majority of Catholics (66%) and those declaring no religion (74%) were in favour.

    Marriage, God, national pride, opportunity......everything is dead in the UK.

    If it wasn't for soccer, I think the whole country would fall into a perpetual coma.

    Many are now looking for greener pastures. It's unrecognizable to anyone old enough to have known what Britain, and her people, were.

    Decent people play rugby. The country is always **** when the tories seize control. They are like your Republicans - we need to hang a few to encourage the others - to leave.

    Re: Britain celebrates its first legal gay weddings

    It' says they now have 2 legal definitions for marriage

    (which leads to "untidiness in law but we think it's worth it" - paraphrased from article)

    Isnt this what we are trying to avoid?

    Speaking of God's voice....the Ten Commandments should be on soon! Easter is right around the corner.
