Letter: Better gay than wed

Click to follow
Sir: So now we know deceit is a family value (report, 15 February). Marriages between hetero and homosexual people are usually traumatic for all concerned and result in single-parent families. 'Mutually beneficial arrangements' between lesbians and gay men are fairer. Tory whips could recruit lesbians to marry their gay MPs but, unfortunately, according to the recent National Survey of Sexual Lifestyles, it seems lesbians are too few to serve the party's needs.

Yours faithfully,
