Civil Partnership

The Civil Partnership Act (2004) enabled homosexual couples to obtain a legally recognised way of binding their relationship. This enables homosexual couples to have some of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. There were a total of 861 civil partnerships in 2015 which has significantly declined from 5,646 in 2013. A reason for this decline in civil partnerships would be due to the introduction of marriage equality in 2014.
