Not being able to marry your partner because they are terminally ill.

My partner and I have been together for 7 yrs. He has Idiopathic chronic pancreatitis ( idopathic means the doctors do not know why this has happened ) amongst other things but that being the worst. He worked all his life untill he fell terminally ill with this painful horrible condition. Now He can NOT work due to this he is on ESA IN the support group. We can not have children which saddens us very much. We were supposed to get married last year but unfortunately because of the govenment and DWP we could not get married. As we all know this is a very expensive country to live in with 2 people in a household working. But we can not live together or get married as I like most working class people would not be able to keep the two of us on a living wage. They would take all of his ESA away from him. He not I asked for him to be struck down with degenerative/terminal disease which he got 2yrs after we got together. He paid his taxes and n.i same as us all. It is so unfair that he is just going to get more and more ill, we cant have children and now the government and DWP are making it impossible for us to live together and get married like everyone else. Please could I get as much support on this as something like this can happen to anyone at any time. I'm sure there are others out there in our situation or know someone in this situation it is horrible and unfair. I'm 34 and my partner is 42. As well as working full time hours I am also his full time carer.
