I'm a proud single parent of three fantastic young adults. Their father like sadly many these days has no input in their up bringing so I feel not only should my name be on the cert but his shouldn't even be on there !

As mothers do the lions share of parenting and in some cases are not even there in the child's life. Also when another man brings up a woman's children surely the mothers name is as important

Yet more evidence that we need marriage law reform more generally. Proud that our civil partnership certificate names all parents, as it obviously should.

I feel it is important to be able to trace the female members of a family.

my daughter has no contact with her father and hasn't since she was 6 months old. Why should he be named anywhere? I haev brought her up and don't get anything. She's only 8 but it's the principle.
