The States of Guernsey today passed the law allowing same-sex marriage in Guernsey, by a vote of 33 to 5.
Apart from Northern Island, Guernsey was the only place left in the British Isles where equal marriage wasn’t available, after Jersey voted to bring it in last year. That imbalance has now been rectified in this historic ruling.
Ellie Jones, vice chair of Liberate said “We are ecstatic that Guernsey is now a more equal place to live and that the States have demonstrated their support for LGBTQ islanders, some of whom have waited a very long time to be able to get married.”
The first same sex weddings should be able to take place from the middle of next year.
