Less than 1% of British civil partnerships end in 'divorce'


"Figures obtained by PinkNews.co.uk show that less than 250 lesbian and gay civil partnerships have ended in a dissolution. Between December 2005, when gay and lesbian couples gained the legal right to formalise their relationships, and December 2007, there were 24,629 civil partnerships in England and Wales," writes Tony Grew.
