Clare Chambers/ Paul Coleridge/ Peter Tatchell
Marriage is an odd mix of sex, religion, and politics. We ask what marriage is and whether there is there any distinctive moral value in it. Should the state promote it? Is it possible to have an ‘equal’ marriage, or is marriage fundamentally an oppressive institution? Should marriage be rejected in favour of civil partnerships, or something else, or perhaps nothing else?
