The Isle Of Man Legalized Marriage Equality!

Written by 

Isle of Man

 

 

That's it, it's official, Northern Ireland is the only country in the UK not to have legalized marriage equality yet as the Isle of Man has just done it!

Last October, we saw that the Isle of man, which is an independent country part of the United-Kingdom and therefore has its own laws, was preparing to debate a bill to allow the legalization of marriage equality.

Good news! The bill was approved by the Legislative Council by a 6-3 vote. This measure will allow marriage for same-sex couples as well as civil unions.

So now Northern Ireland is the only country in the kingdom not to have legalized marriage equality as England, Wales and the Republic of Ireland have already done it.

With regard Jersey and Guernsey, we already saw that legislative proposals to legalize equal marriage have been approved but legalization is not effective yet.

In any case, it's really a good win for LGBTQ couples in the Isle of man that has legalized homosexuality in 1992.
