Gay marriage needs redefined

MARRIAGE is defined as a legal contract made by a man and woman to live as husband and wife. In the UK, the Civil Partnership Act gives same-sex couples rights and responsibilities identical to civil marriage.

As 'gay' is now a word used by homosexuals to describe themselves, perhaps a new word is needed for a legal contract between same-sex couples.
