WATCH: One Dublin Mother Explains Why She Wants The Right To Marry Her Partner
Sinead McCrone had her first commitment ceremony to her partner Sophie six years ago, became civil partners four years ago and is waiting to see the fate of the upcoming referendum to see if she can be officially married to the woman she loves.
The pair, who this week featured in an awareness campaign to support the Yes Equality side ahead of Friday’s vote, told Mashable:
“We both know how lucky we are to want to marry the same person three times - and still be so in love.”
Now Sinéad has released a video urging people to reconsider voting No if they are planning to make their choices based on same-sex couples raising children.
The couple, who are proud parents to a baby girl, want people to make informed decisions, realising their vote doesn’t change the adoption process or the ability for same-sex couples to parent children.
It’s simply a chance to give equal rights to everyone in our society, to marry the person they love.
If you’re trying to make some last minute headway with a No voter, this might be worth a share.
