Yvette Cooper: When two people want to get married, it should be a cause for celebration whatever their gender or sexuality
Yvette Cooper MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, responding to comments today about marriage, said:
"When two people love each other and want to get married, it should be a cause for celebration - whatever their gender or sexuality.
"Marriage as long-term, loving commitment is deeply important to a strong society. But strengthening marriage means making sure it reflects the modern and inclusive values of that society too."
