Humanist marriage (A)

Please take a minute to use the simple system below to urge your MP to support the legal recognition of humanist marriages. The Government is due to make a decision on this after over three years of inaction and your MP can help influence in favour of this long-awaited change.

If we don’t act now, it could be decades – or never – before we have an opportunity like this again.

We’ve suggested some text you can use below, but please, if you are able, do edit it to make it more personal – we know that MPs are more likely to take notice of personalised emails and queries, which are infinitely more powerful than standard letters. Here are some examples:

  • If you are someone who is planning, or has had, a humanist wedding… please explain this, and the difference legal recognition would make or would have made to your special day.

  • If you are someone who have friends or family who have had a humanist wedding… please describe what the experience was like, and how it differed to other weddings you have been to.

  • If you are someone who has conducted humanist wedding ceremonies… emphasise this, and identify what makes these ceremonies distinct and special.

Thank you for your support.
