Same sex marriage

Such interesting news from New Zealand about same sex marriage (SSM) and as an heterosexual married woman I have a suggestion.
To keep things simple i.e. straight or non-straight – how about changing the word for heterosexual arrangements (HA) from “marriage” to “partnerships”. HA couples already often use the word “partners” so why don’t we make it easy and adopt this term for HA arrangements and then we would all have what we wanted – HA couples would continue using the word “partners” and SSM couples would have what they have demanded for so long now – “marriage”. Legislation could fix up the legalities – equal rights and conditions for both HA and SSM couples.
Problem solved.
