    The law itself isn't relevent to childminding or childcare at all. The law isn't saying we have to treat married gay couples in a different way. It isn't directing us to be inclusive. It is a law allowing gay couples to marry and have the same rights as other married couples. There's no need to have any paperwork in order any more than there would be for any other same sex couple who are using childcare, or indeed for any parents. You make it relevent to their situation, whatever that may be.

    The blog isn't about getting paperwork in order. It's about stepping up your practice to make sure you're inclusive of married gay couples. The title says "how it will effect us". The new law won't affect us, even if we do look after the children of same sex couples who decide to marry. It's good practice that affects how we deal with parents, not a law allowing them to marry.
    I didnt say there was I was replying to the pp :-)
    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door
