Young FG Propose the Recognition of Marriage for Same Sex Couples

A proposal that same sex couples be given the right to marriage will be under discussion at the Young Fine Gael (YFG) Summer School in Galway City this weekend (July 8th – 10th).

YFG President, Eric Keane, said: "This proposal would mean that there would be no difference between a union of a heterosexual and a homosexual couple. While homosexual couples are currently entitled to enter into a civil union, they are not granted the same rights and responsibilities that go with a conventional marriage.

"This would mean that homosexual couples would be allowed to adopt in the future. The way the law is at present a gay man or woman can legitimately and successfully apply to adopt a child but bizarrely the State will not allow a gay couple to apply to adopt a child.
