Written evidence from Miss Mary Erazo  Bastidas [HAB0091]

The public commitment made in wedding vows gives families great stability. The Government should recognise and promote this, rather than undermine marriage by offering equivalent rights to those who choose not to be committed.


I am a single mother, and I cohabited with my daughter’s dad, he never committed to creating a real family and he left, my daughter is 18 years old now and I raised her up as a single mother, but on many occasions, I thought how much she needs a proper family. Married couples give the environment to raise up children,  they need both parents, be a single parent  isn’t easy, and is very difficult to play both roles.
