Was it good for you?...
I got a letter from the London Mayor, Ken Livingston this morning. He wanted to know what we'd both thought of the London Partnerships Register that Marky and I signed up to two months ago. He was asking for any suggestions for improvement in the procedure, what a difference it had made to your relationship, what were our reasons for registering and how we were intending to use the fact that we had registered now we had done so.
All easy questions to answer: The procedure was fine thanks, Ken. Mark and I are closer than ever. By registering we have acknowledged to ourselves and to others our commitment to each other, it may help prove the status of our relationship for formal or legal matters and it general terms it supports a wider campaign towards equal opportunities. We are going to include a copy of it to go with our Wills.
I can honestly say that 3rd November 2001 was the happiest day of my life. I couldn't stop grinning.
