The Marrying Kind
Civil partnerships for opposite-sex couples would mean that no one would get married unless they very explicitly wanted to be married, in preference to a specific alternative.

For one thing, divorce could be made far more difficult, at least for people who had chosen marriage after this new arrangement had come into force.
After all, if they had not wanted that, then they could always have had a civil partnership instead.
