 UK: Unmarried free to adopt as couple


Unmarried and same-sex couples can now adopt children together for the first time, as part of the biggest overhaul of adoption laws for 30 years.
Previously, unmarried people in England and Wales adopted individually - giving their partner fewer parental rights.

New rights for foster parents and those tracing children they gave up are also part of the Adoption and Children Act.

Support groups say the changes, which were passed in 2002, could encourage more people to come forward to adopt.
