Deiseb a wrthodwyd Allow the return of small legal marriages.

The Welsh government has a responsibility to uphold basic rights of legal marriage for everyone. Marriage provides legal rights for inheritance, children, next of kin, medical decisions, and housing. Moreover, at the beginning of lockdown the advice for couples was to move in together or separate - which has added strain on people of faith (and/or similar values) who require marriage before that is possible. This needs to be reinstated as soon as possible.

Marriage is the only article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that is not supplemented in some way, or given a high priority in the easing of lockdown.

It should be for the minimum number of people (5 for the Church in Wales, or 6 for any outside of this) or up to 10 like funerals. Additionally, it could be carried out in a similar manner to funerals, and would be safer than a supermarket due to the planning that goes along with weddings.

In addition to the legal rights that come with marriage, many religions and value systems require marriage before they can live together as a couple. Despite marriage and faiths being a protected characteristic of the Equality Act (2011), they have been more impacted by the lockdown and disregarded throughout decision making.

Pam gwrthodwyd y ddeiseb hon?

Mae deiseb yn bodoli eisoes ar y mater hwn. Ni allwn dderbyn deiseb newydd os oes un yn bodoli eisoes ar fater tebyg iawn, neu os yw’r Pwyllgor Deisebau wedi ystyried deiseb debyg yn ystod y flwyddyn ddiwethaf.

Mae deiseb arall ynghylch cyllid brys i sŵau eisoes yn casglu llofnodion:

Byddech yn fwy tebygol o gael canlyniad ar y mater hwn pe baech yn llofnodi a rhannu’r un ddeiseb.

Dim ond deisebau nad ydynt yn bodloni’r safonau ar gyfer deisebau y byddwn yn eu gwrthod
