Civil Partnerships Can Be Converted to Marriage From December 10th 2014

File:Symbol thumbs up.svgFinally!

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport have just announced (26th June 2014) that couples will be able to convert their civil partnerships to marriage from December 10th.

This is fantastic news for those who have been waiting to hear a date since March.

There isn't much information available yet about how it'll be done, but, as we said previously, there's nothing to suggest it'll be anything too complicated.

Here's hoping it's a few postal forms and a small fee.

The Government had faced criticism from both same-sex couples and gay rights groups for not setting a date earlier. Although, they had always hinted that it was likely to be close to the end of 2014.

Once we hear more, we'll keep you updated.

Congratulations to all those who will converting in December :)
