LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May told parliament on Wednesday she would consider with great care a Supreme Court ruling in favour of allowing a heterosexual couple to enter into a civil partnership.

Britain’s top court ruled earlier on Wednesday in favour of allowing a heterosexual couple the right to enter into a civil partnership, previously a union only eligible to those of the same sex.
