Same Sex Marriages
From Saturday 29 March 2014 marriage in England and Wales has become equal for all couples. Couples wishing to get married must give Notice of Marriage. The main provisions of the new same sex marriage laws are:
Allow same sex couples to marry in a civil ceremony
Allow same sex couples to marry in a religious ceremony where the religious organisation has "opted in" to conduct such ceremonies and the minister of religion agrees
Enable civil partners to convert their partnership into a marriage, if they wish (from 10/12/2014)
Enable married individuals to change their legal gender without having to end their marriage
