Protected Characteristic -   Marriage & Civil Partnership

[ Zoom ]
""

You can get married or form a civil partnership in the UK if you’re:

  •     16 or over
  •     free to marry or form a civil partnership (single, divorced or widowed)
  •     not closely related

You need permission from your parents or guardians if you’re under 18 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Only same sex couples can form a civil partnership.

Civil partners must be treated the same as married couples on a wide range of legal matters.

Our policies are inclusive of all staff who have celebrated a marriage or civil partnership.
