First Public Military Civil Partnership

#1
I know it's in the Sun, but God, am I glad it's not a sailor!

First Military Civil Partnership

On the positive side, his ex-missus looks quite tidy, and if he is off with his boyfriend, she is up for consolation......

The most confusing bit is that he announced to her he was gay within 3 weeks of the wedding in 1994, but he still managed to force his alter-ego back into the closet enough times to father 3 children!

I believe the first non-public military civil partnership was Lt Cdr Whatshisface MBE......for services involving whining loudly that no-one took him seriously when all he wanted was to be an oppressed minority!

I think its wonderful and a fine example of diversity and tolerance within the new Bliar model army, only question is, which one wears the wedding dress?

At the risk of a cyber-pounding from the residents of the NAAFI Bar, all I can say is Congratulations and good luck to both of them, and I hope that he doesn't get to much hassle from the rest of the guys in his unit.

Hassle from the other guys? In the Royal Anglicans? Catch yourself on!

Fair play to him for going public but cynically speaking the Army will probably fast-track his promotions now to avoid any suggestion of discrimination!

What does he mean by "From top to bottom, they have been brilliant." Is he talking about how supportive the MOD have been or how his sexual conquests within the ranks have been!!! :lol:

The scum as ever are wrong. A mate of mine a Sgt married her long-term partner on the 21st of December (the first day of civil partnership in England).

The local paper published a lovely picture but they were the only media to cover the event. Some top media people did offer to cover the event but were turned down by the happy couple.

Worm.

It isn't a marriage, it's a Civil partnership. Personally it makes me want to throw up, but each to their own. His missus looks decent, anyone got her number?

Am I the only one here who twigged to the planted quote about how the Army have supported him?

“From top to bottom, they have been brilliant.”

This is the best quote from the Sun in years.

I reckon the bloke had deliberated over his decision for some time. God luck to him. Shame on his missus though being dumped with three kids.

As for the two lesbians , at 18 and 19 yrs of age, I doubt it will last. How many successful marriages have you seen between hetros of that age group? Nothing but a silly wee girls publicity stunt. I would hate to be living in a quarter next to them. The 'domestics' will be plentiful and the Quarter will just be used as a place for their mates to party.

God help the neighbours.

It was only a matter of time before this appeared in the Scum et al and I am sure that it is no surprise to many. I am sure that they were quite well known before now, especially in their respective units, but I must say that the only thing that shocked me was their ages: 18 & 19.

If any of my soldiers, male or female, came to see me at that age to discuss getting married I would do my best to disuade them - it wasn't until my thirties when I felt mature enough to settle down. Whilst it is good that they seem committed to each other, I would be surprised if this lastest enough 5 years. They both need to enjoy life before being tied down.

What has this actually gained them? They are not serving in the same unit and so will not be living together all of the time, hence one of them will be living out, on their own, running a house on a private's wage. Not what you want to be doing at that age - there are better ways to waste your money.

Call me a cynic but how long before ' First Gay/Lesbian Army Couple Divorce - couple blame overstretch'
