It has been officially confirmed that same-sex couples will be legally able to marry from Monday morning onwards.
The news comes after the Minister for Justice and Equality Frances Fitzgerald has revealed she will sign the commencement order for the Marriage Act 2015, which will in turn allow same-sex couples to marry in Ireland. The new law will will be made official when the Tánaiste Joan Burton signs an accompanying regulation document which makes an amendment to the Civil Registration Act of 2004.
Leading Government ministers say the new legislation which will allow same-sex marriage in the Republic Of Ireland will be officially introduced by next Monday, the 16th of November. The new legislation will be introduced just six months after the Irish public voted in favour of Same-Sex marriage.
