British politicians have proposed to change the traditional meaning of the words "husband" and "wife", leaving the possibility of same-sex marriages, women call their husbands and wives — men. It is reported by The Daily Telegraph.
This interpretation is contained in the notes to the final version of the bill to legalize same-sex marriages in England and Wales. These notes must determine in the case of adoption of the law to use certain terms in official documents, as well as to be aligned with the new form of marriage all the legislation.
According to the notes mentioned in the existing legislative instruments of his wife will be men in same-sex marriages, and the husbands — women, writes The Daily Mail. However, the new law is still recommended to use the word "wife" just for women, and "husband" — to men.
A bill to legalize same-sex marriages in England and Wales was introduced by the British government in late 2012. In May 2013 the House of Commons approved the bill, then he has successfully passed two readings in the House of Lords. Third reading in the upper house is scheduled for mid-July. The Scottish prepare their own bill on gay marriage. In Northern Ireland, a proposal to legalize same-sex marriage in April 2013 was rejected by the local assembly.
