Written evidence from Mr Anthony Waring [HAB0015]
Can MPs find nothing better to do than undermine marriage ? I am astonished the so-called equalities committee are discussing the conferring of financial rights to unmarried couples. I should remind you that a commitment to marriage promotes to stability on society and it is unquestionably the best environment in which to bring up children. Cohabitation is unstable – why escalate further breakdown in society and if you really cannot see the inherent danger in these proposals you should’nt be in parliament. People have a clear choice – get married and enjoy all the benefits of that state or not but don’t expect to get all the rewards if you are not prepared to accept the obligations.
