Guernsey Passes Same-Sex Marriage Law





Guernsey passed a same-sex marriage law this week.

This is fantastic news for the resident LGBT community who have campaigned relentlessly for the right to marry.

It’s hoped that the first same-sex weddings could take place around mid-2017.


Guernsey is the last of the British Crown Dependencies to pass same-sex marriage. Neighbouring Jersey did so earlier this year, and, further afield, so too did the Isle of Man.

Crown dependencies are not part of the United Kingdom or Great Britain therefore, Guernsey was not required to follow England, Scotland and Wales for marriage equality in 2015.
