Family Law Blog - One month to go before same sex couples can marry

Share On:


It is one month now (from 29 March 2014) that same sex couples will be able to marry in civil ceremonies and in religious ceremonies, where a religious organisation has opted in to marrying same sex couples. Couples who have entered into a civil partnership will be able to convert that civil partnership to a marriage if they wish. Individuals who want to change their legal gender will be able to do so without having to end their marriage.

If you are considering marriage, it is always a good idea to find out the financial implications of doing so. For some couples, a prenuptial agreement may be a good idea. They are particularly relevant where one person is in a much better financial position than the other prior to the marriage or where one or both of the couples have children from previous relationships whom they would want to provide for if the marriage broke down.
