Bermuda same-sex marriage: Government will not block bill

February 9, 2018

On Wednesday the British overseas territory became the first country in the world to pass, and then revoke, the law, replacing gay marriage with domestic partnerships.

The decision also means cruise ships registered in Bermuda are likely to be banned from hosting same-sex weddings.

Theresa May said the UK’s dealings with Bermuda should be based on “respect”.

But critics say the law reversal will make the UK an international “laughing stock”.

The Atlantic island, which is home to 60,000 people, legalised marriage between homosexual couples in May 2017, following a Supreme Court ruling.

But the new Domestic Partnership Act, approved by Bermuda Governor John Rankin on Wednesday, rolls back the legalisation.

Instead of marriage, the act allows gay or straight couples to form a partnership, which the Bermuda government says carries equivalent rights.

    OK confused politicians, lets muddy the water more than you have already. Get out of the marriage business and leave that to the churches. Civil unions are the only thing you have any need to record. You don’t seem to care about what kind of unions you allow so stop looking so foolish by calling it a marriage. There is only one definition for MARRIAGE and anything else is just confusion and a path to evil. Get off this roll-a-coaster and bring marriage back to what God had intended it to be.
