Same-Sex Marriage Officially Legal in the UK

Recommended Posts

Gay rights activists are celebrating an “historic” moment after same-sex marriage was officially legalised – but churches claimed marriage has been “stripped” of its meaning.

MPs cheered in the House of Commons as it was announced that royal assent had been given to the new Bill, paving the way for the first same-sex weddings next spring.

 

The Queen, who is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, gave her formal approval to the Bill – one of the most radical pieces of social legislation of her reign – this afternoon. (Wednesday)

 

It follows debates in both houses of Parliament earlier this week to finalise approval for the Bill.

 

Benjamin Cohen, founder of the Out4Marriage campaign, said: “Giving gay couples the right to marry will make our nation a more tolerant, open and welcoming place to live in and significantly increase the life prospects of so many people.

 

 

I'm thinking if this is legalised, we can surely start working on Bigamy?

Don't see a problem with polygamy

for it to ever happen in the uk you would need a lot of men to die first
