Ten questions from the older LGBT community (They equally apply to the unmarried straight)

  • I would like to involve my partner in my affairs, but I don’t want to have to discuss our relationship with others?
  • I want my partner to arrange my funeral. I don’t want my family interfering. How can I avoid this?
  • My partner and I are not married or Civil partners. But we have been together for 30 years surely that means they will inherit all of my estate?
  • My partner and I have both made Wills leaving everything to each other. Surely that is sufficient?
  • Does the fact that my partner and I have lived together for 30 years count for nothing?
  • My partner and I bought a house together 25 years ago. I was not working at the time and therefore the mortgage proceeded in my partner’s sole name. As a consequence, the property was transferred into their sole name. We have however always treated the house as a jointly owned asset. We equally contributed to paying off the mortgage and have jointly maintained the property. My partner has now died without a Will. My partner’s sister now claims that the house is hers under the intestacy rules and I will have to leave. What can I do?
  • My partner and I can see absolutely no advantage in getting married. It is an outdated institution.
  • I have heard that the Equality Act now makes it illegal to discriminate against me on the grounds of my sexual orientation. Is that true?
  • I am worried that if I have to go and live in a nursing home I will be discriminated against on the grounds of my sexual orientation.
  • My healthcare worker asked me why a nice person like me was homosexual. What can I do about this?
