Recording UK Civil Partnerships

+2 votes

Following the passage into law of the Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Act 2019, civil partnerships are now available in the UK to opposite-sex couples as well as same-sex couples.

I should very much like to know whether Wikitree has any plans to change the "Edit Family" section of the Profile to reflect this? As there are legal civil partnerships or equivalents in quite a few countries, perhaps it would avoid confusion for future researchers if Wikitree used something like "Spouse or Legal Partner" instead? Might also go some way towards promoting non-discriminatory terms...

I'd very much like to add my partner, but he isn't my "Spouse" and I don't intend to add him under that wording.
