Two Couples Challenge The Marriage Equality Ban In Northern Ireland

Written by 

Shannon Sickles Grainne Close Chris Henry Flanagan Kane

 

As I have mentioned several times, Northern Ireland has still not legalized marriage equality because its laws differ from those of Ireland, which has recently approved marriage for same-sex couples by referendum.

However, two couples, Shannon Sickles and Grainne Close, and Chris Henry and Flanagan-Kane, just launched a challenge against the ban in Belfast High Court.

After attempting to approve the equal marriage law four times without success, it is definitely time to try the legal method for Northern Ireland is no longer the only country in the UK not to grant marriage to same-sex couples.
