Gays to tie knot at 16

GAYS and lesbians will be able to marry at 16 in an historic legal shake-up to be unveiled this week. It will give them the same legal, financial and medical rights as married heterosexual couples. They will sign a legal register that would force them to go to the divorce courts if they split. The changes are in the Civil Partnerships Bill, published on Wednesday.
Tory health spokesman Tim Yeo backed the move, saying: “It’s important that people who have registered a partnership should get the rights that accompany that.”
