    A new political party, The Feminist Initiative, in Sweden says it will abolish marriage if it gets into power.
    They claim marriage "is not about love, but about ownership".

    The rebellious political party expects more than 20% of the vote in next year's election.

    FI founder, Tiina Rosenberg, said: "Instead of marriage we want to promote a co-habitation law that ignores gender and allows more than two people in a partnership." Although, the FI would not want Sweden to fall back into a "patriarchal structure" where one man has a harem of women.

    And in order to encourage men to vote for them as well, the party's all-female board would call for a six-hour working day.

    I don't even know what to say, I think most of us girls have dreamt about the white dress and the party and feeling like a princess.

    Well the definitely won't allow same sex marriages.

    You don't need to be married to someone to show your life long love.
