Equal Marriage

In a brand new series for Radio 4, News Quiz favourite Susan Calman explores issues on which she has strong opinions. This week, she examines the current hot political topic of Equal Marriage from a personal perspective.

When Susan was younger, she thought marriage was silly. A patriarchal institution which she would never buy into. That was until she grew up, fell in love and wanted more than anything to get married - except she couldn't.

Susan relates her own personal experiences on this matter; including the minutiae of the legislation governing her recent civil partnership ceremony, as well as examining the well-trodden arguments against the issue.

Produced by Lyndsay Fenner.
