Greetings and happy friday to you all!
The link today is sadly one that is very common and prevalent these days. People who are legally married being denied recognition of that fact and being forced to pay more for things as a consequence. This couple, legally married it seems, applied for a family membership and were denied. It seems that you can only really be considered as having a husband if you are female in this instance.
It would be easy to say to move to another gym but, as you will see in the article, there are other reasons why it is not appropriate for them to do so. So they are forced to pay for two individual memberships at higher cost if they stay where they are. Would this be easy to fix? Most certainly. All we have to do is recognise those marriages that are carried out legally. It clearly exists, so why waste time pretending it doesn’t?
Oh, and the subtext here, in case you haven’t picked up on it, is that in elections if you vote for a candidate that doesn’t support equality you are voting to pay more. Does that make it easier to understand?
