Same Sex Marriages to start in Guernsey on ‘Star Wars’ Day (4 May 2017)

Same-sex marriages will be able to happen in Guernsey from 4 May 2017 (also known as Star Wars Day – “May the Fourth be With You”).

The last legislative hurdle was cleared on 26 April 2017, when the island’s parliament voted through its last part. The law will come into effect on 2 May 2017, and same sex couples will be able to hold weddings in Guernsey from 4 May 2017 onwards.

In Bermuda, proponents of same sex marriage rights still await the judgment of Mrs. Justice Charles-Etta Simmons, which has not yet been delivered, even though it was originally expected to have been ready by now.
