Hot on the heels of the government announcing last week that the first same sex marriage ceremonies in England and Wales will take place from 29 March 2014, The Review (journal published by Resolution, the association of UK family lawyers) has published an article they asked us to write for them about the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 .
Our article focuses on the new law and what it will mean for lawyers and same sex couples from a practical and legal perspective. The article explains what the Act actually does, including where the ceremonies can take place and in the event of a separation, the grounds for divorce. Richard’s article can be read here.
