Heterosexual Couple Has Lost Civil Partnership Battle In The High Court

hign court

Rebecca Steinfeld and Charles Keidan have been attempting to get legal recognition for their seven-year relationship - but do not want to get married.

The two, who have a 20-month-old daughter, have been stopped from getting a civil partnership as the law states they are only for same-sex couples.

The three judges hearing the case accepted there had been a breach of the couple's human rights, but said the Government should be allowed more time to decide on the future of civil partnerships.

Speaking after the ruling, Miss Steinfeld, 35, said they were "deeply disappointed" by the decision.

She said they had lost on a "technicality" and that "the government cannot maintain the status quo for much longer".

Mr Keidan, 40, said he and his partner were "determined to go on" with their appeal, taking the case to the Supreme Court if the government didn't act.
