Just an ordinary couple

Hi Katherine & Ann Louise,

My partner Helena and I have been together since 1982 and became Civil Partners on the 29th July this year. We eagerly await news of full marriage status - an equality we feel should be our civil right. Many thanks for taking this to the Supreme Court.

Kindest regards,

Bernie & Helena

Just wanted to wish you well today, and the weeks ahead.

Thank you for your courage, and commitment to ensuring that
All citizens of this country are valued and treated equally.

Kind Regards,

Thank you for being so brave and courageous! I am very disappointed that is taking so much of your time, energy and finances to gain the recognition of your loving marriage and with slow success. It is very sad that a country full of such bright and hopeful people seems to be dominated by such fearful decision makers. The glow from your inspiration and aspirations is like a torch that I hope will keep burning. Best wishes,lots of love and many thanks, Rachel <3

Dear Katherine and Ann Louise,

Best of luck in your court challenge. It's not just you that's in there arguing for equality we are all there with you arguing for equality. By the way I wish to thank Ann Louise for signing my copy the book Our Lives Out Loud at the INTO LGBT conference back in October 2009.

Take care


Thank you Katherine and Ann Louise for having the courage to demand what you deserve. In doing so things have already begun to change for the rest of us, every tiny bit of public awareness and support makes such a huge difference
