    Heard him yesterday on drive time. He said he wanted to introduce a type of civil marriage that does not allow for divorce, alongside the current system. His reason being that as 49% of people who voted in the 1995 referendum voted against divorce, that there was a need for it.

      Maybe someone should let him know that if people don’t want to get divorced, they don’t have to.

    I’m no lawyer, but I’m fairly sure civil law doesn’t allow for contracts which can’t be cancelled/wound up, etc. So civil marriage with no divorce possible isn’t going to work out for him. I think he’ll find the Catholic Church have the version of marriage he’s looking for :-) also, the divorce referendum in which 49% voted no was nearly 20 years ago. If he’s still relying on those no voters to turn out and vote for him, I fear he’s in for a nasty surprise. A good number of them are dead, to be brutally honest.

      I seem to remember after the ’95 referendum one of the Bean Uí Lunacy types thought that the 49% who voted No would vote for her new Catholic values party. Needless to say, she lost her deposit.
