Documentary of the Week!! (Can We Get Married?)

Emma and Ben are a couple for six years, and just like any normal couple in their late twenties they are thinking of their future together and the possibility of marriage.

But unlike many normal couples, Emma and Ben both have Down’s syndrome and are residents of a supported-living community in Devon, where they have an active social life and part-time jobs. They live in a small house with their friend Cy Clench, who also has Down’s syndrome. If Emma and Ben were to get married, it could mean a completely different way of living. Can We Get Married changed the way I viewed Down’s Syndrom. Not only cam they function and take care of themselves, but they are capable of a committed and serious relationships, that deal with a whole array of emotions.
