Same Sex Marriage moves closer

Posted Tue 10th October 2017 at 10:26

States members will this month vote on new legislation to allow same sex couples to get married in Alderney.

The Same Sex Marriage (Alderney) Law 2017 will give same sex couples the right to get married in a civil ceremony or, providing the religious organisation concerned agrees, in a religious building or according to religious rites.

It will also extend existing legislation for heterosexual couples, covering issues like divorce, separation and bigamy to same sex couples. The legislation has been drawn up by Law Officers into a Projet de Loi. At last month's Policy and Finance meeting Policy and Finance Committee members voted unanimously to approve the legislation. States Members will be now asked to vote to request the President to ask the Privy Council to sanction the new law. If approved by the Privy Council, a raft of amendments to other loca legislation will also have to take place such as to tax and inheritance laws, which is not expected to be a speedy process.
