Sir: Thirty-six years ago my wife and I, then an engaged couple, discussed at some length whether we wished to marry or to live together as partners.

We decided in favour of marriage and have not regretted it.

This morning, when we discussed the Green Paper Supporting Families, we agreed instantly that had we had to face the prospect of a homily from the registrar we might well have made this decision the other way.
