|Stuff: Richard Rawstorn and Richard Andrew are already civil union partners but want to receive the same rights as opposite-sex couples.|
To celebrate this historic occasion, same-sex couples such as Richard and Richard pictured above, are upgrading their civil union to a marriage to get the same rights as male and female couples. Someone's going to have to break this to them - they don't have the same ability and therefore the right to procreate with each other. No matter how much they try and take temps and watch for mucous, a little baby Richard will not miraculously appear in one of their tummies.
David Farrar calls today, Marriage Day.
