Verdict on Northern Ireland's Gay Marriage Ban Due After Christmas




A verdict on Northern Ireland’s same-sex marriage ban will be returned after Christmas, a judge has told the Belfast High Court.


The judge told the High Court that there were “a lot of issues raised in the case” before confirming the timescale for his decision. 


The judge’s decision will also take into consideration a separate legal challenge brought by a third couple over the right to have their English same-sex marriage recognised in Northern Ireland. Currently, the two men can only be civil partners.

Northern Ireland is the only country in the United Kingdom where same-sex couples are unable to get married.
