This petition was rejected
Why was this petition rejected?
It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.
Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action. We're not sure whether your petition is about retaining civil partnerships in their current form or extending civil partnerships to opposite sex couples.
There are no plans to change the law around civil partnerships at the moment.
You could start a new petition explaining clearly what you would like the Government or Parliament to do. For example, you could start a new petition asking Parliament and Government to extend civil partnerships to opposite sex couples, if that's what you'd like to happen.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
