On December 5th 2004, The Civil Partnership Act came into effect in the United Kingdom. This act allowed couples of the same-sex to have legal recognition of their relationship. By doing so couples who entered into a civil partnership obtained the legal status of “Civil Partners”, as opposed to the traditional husband and wife status.
Once a civil partnership occurs between these couples, they are entitled to receive similar treatment and benefits as that of any married couple.
