Frances Hughes comments in Family Law on civil partnerships being extended to mixed-sex couples

Home > NEWS > 05 Oct 2018

The Government has announced its intention to introduce civil partnerships for heterosexual couples in England and Wales as an alternative to getting married, saying that the move will provide greater security for unmarried couples and their families.

Frances Hughes commented:
“The Government’s decision to extend civil partnerships to heterosexual couples will be welcomed by the legal profession. The announcement is not before time, gender-neutral civil partnerships having been available in the Netherlands and Belgium for almost 20 years.”
