The law which will allow "gay marriages" in Jersey has now been registered in the Royal Court and the States will now decide on which date the Civil Partnership Law will take effect.
The new law enables two people of the same sex to form a civil partnership in Jersey and allows the recognition of civil partnerships formed outside Jersey.
It also provides for the dissolution or annulment of civil partnerships; the separation of civil partners; property and financial arrangements of civil partners and issues relating to the children of civil partners.
While Jersey is now on the brink of making same-sex unions legal, in Guernsey there has been little progress toward the establishment of a similar law.
