The word 'marriage' has been removed from Wolverhampton's register office in the wake of civil partnerships being introduced. BBC News website in Birmingham spoke to people to find out what they thought about the change.
Richard Gordon, 19, from Leicester: "I don't think it's that bad. It's still associated with marriage and doesn't change what I think about marriage."
Sophia Johnson, 23, from Birmingham: "It's ridiculous, political correctness gone too far. If you're gonna allow it by law then call it a marriage suite. It's like not being allowed to celebrate Christmas because you're not Christian."
Nikki Gahir, 38, from Birmingham: "I think all people have the right to get married in a 'Marriage suite', people who are offended are narrow minded. What difference does it make as long as you're not hurting anyone."
Karen Jenkins, 43, from Birmingham: "I think it's political correctness gone too far. It's just a word at the end of the day and I'm sure my Gay friends would see it as a marriage."
Stuart Weir, 34, Cheltenham: "I think the word is more generic and generally Gay people would be happy because it's less specific."
