BBC News: 'Gay weddings' become law in UK - Civil partnership: the wedding that dare not speak its name. I think civil partnerships are great news, but why couldn't they have just called them marriages? That's what they are, and gay people should have the right to get married the same as the rest of us. At least they now have all the legal protection that goes with marriage. And most people will probably refer to it as a wedding and a marriage anyway.
