Gay Couples in Britain Begin Registering for Civil Partnerships

From Brighton to Birmingham and beyond, gay and lesbian couples began registering Monday for the first ceremonies later this month permitting a form of same-sex marriage in Britain.  As a new law permitting what are called civil partnerships came into effect, at least 1,200 couples scheduled ceremonies set to take place between Dec. 19 in Northern Ireland and Dec. 21 in England and Wales.
