A FIFTH of BBC Radio 5 Live listeners, when asked, said that they wouldn’t attend a gay marriage (thanks to legislation, now known as ‘a marriage’) and that men were twice as likely to not to attend a same-sex wedding as women.

The first Marriages That Happen To Have People Who Are The Same Gender will take place across England and Wales on Saturday, with some tying the knot on the stroke of midnight, after the government’s legislation received the Royal Assent.

Furthermore, Whitehall will fly the rainbow flag above its offices this week to celebrate, which is very nice of them.

69% of British adults polled by ComRes (stop laughing at the back, there) agreed that gay marriage should be allowed but nearly a third of men polled (29%) said they would turn down an invite to a gay wedding, in comparison to 16% of women. All in all, 22% of people said that they wouldn’t accept the invite to some gay nuptials.

Of course, the good thing is that these thundering berks are in the minority. 4 in every 5 people would go to a gay wedding, leaving the 1 in 5 to sit at home on their own, tutting about people they may or may not know, and which genitals people should like.
