Civil Partnerships in the UK

Same-sex marriage is legal in the UK, except in Northern Ireland where a same-sex marriage is given the same status as a civil partnership.

Civil partnerships give similar rights to same-sex couples as to married heterosexual couples, for example benefits and recognition of the relationship for immigration and nationality reasons.
