From today you can either get married, or have a ‘Civil Partnership.’ But the public are curious to see if the fancy new name will still ensure long term unhappiness.
The good news is that marriage experts believe that civil partners will still be able to feel the same misery, regret, and suffocation as married couples.
Local divorce lawyer, Peter Thape predicts an expensive ‘ceremony’ to start, followed by passion, happiness, children, tiredness, loss of identity, confusion, infidelity, sadness, and bitterness to end.
‘Or, you can go the staying together route, which is generally based on fear of death and being alone,’ explained Thape.
‘Or, you can ignore both of the above, and pretend everything’s ok – that’s a big favourite,’ added Thape.
