THE first gay couple to be married in Scotland have expressed “gut-wrenching” sadness about the quashing of a bid for a civil partnership by a heterosexual couple. Rebecca Steinfeld and Charles Keidan have been fighting for their right to enter into a civil partnership, at present only available to same-sex couples. They argue it is discriminatory and should be open to all. Last week they lost their legal challenge when the Court of Appeal said the UK Government should be allowed more time to consider the issue.
