On 5th December 2005, history was made in the struggle towards sexuality equality as partnerships between same-sex couples in the UK became legal. Since then, the number of same-sex couples registering themselves as civil partners of each other has rocketed!
Although the ceremony has been referred to as gay marriage, a civil partnership is not the same as a marriage between opposite-sex couples. The main difference between the services is that a civil partnership is an exclusively civil procedure whereas opposite-sex couples can choose for the ceremony to be religious. Despite this, civil partnerships provide same-sex couples with equal treatment in regards to a wide range of legal matters including, but not limited to, tax, pensions, child support, and employment benefits.
