The Church of England has today declared civil partnerships between men and women are not as good as marriage.

A statement issued by the House of Bishops today, led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, addressed the changes in marriage law for the first time.

The pastoral statement added that marriage, ‘continues to provide the best context for the raising of children.’

The bishops defined marriage as ‘a faithful, committed, permanent and legally sanctioned relationship between a man and a woman making a public commitment to each other,’ and ‘central to the stability and health of human society.’
