Ibid. Roseneil (2004), p 411. Family Friendly? Rights, Responsibilities and Relationship Recognition evidence of unreasonable behaviour leading to the irretrievable breakdown of a civil partnership, if brought about by the conduct of one of the parties. 44 There is at least an implicit recognition here that same-sex partners may not sign up to quite the same comprehensive package of rights and duties expected within the institution of marriage.

It also created a simple no-fault procedure on breakdown, based on a two-month unilateral notice period. The Bill could be interpreted as a move away from status towards autonomy, contract, and reasonable expectations in relationships, to be negotiated and agreed by the parties, as well as easy exit (which is specifically rejected by the government in the context of marriage and partnership).
