Still waiting!!

Thanks for your question. Do you mean a civil partnership? The answer is no. Straight couples can cohabit or they can marry but they can’t have a civil partnership. That is for same sex couples only. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
