32 years together and discriminated against because we were not married

This petition had 36 supporters


I was with my partner for 32 years and we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren

he hung himself on 27th march and sadly passed away on 31st due to the fact he was resuscitated due to hospital policy he was also an organ donor but sadly due to lack of oxygen they were unable to be used

as we were not married I was not entitled to bereavement payment as we were not married but we lived together as man and wife for 26 years I feel this is discrimination and the amount of years together should stand for something . I am now in debt and have had to put up a just giving page my hearts broken and I also have the added stress of paying back his funeral . There should be something for common law we were going to get married next year but his condition deteriorated and he did not want to be a burden to his family
