IoM opposite sex civil partnership will not be recognised by the UK

A few weeks after the British Isles' first opposite sex partnership was registered in the Isle of Man, it's been confirmed that it will not be legally recognised by the British Government.

Lord Nash, the parliamentary under-Secretary of State for Education, told the House of Lords it will not be treated as a civil partnership under the UK law.

The UK's 2004 Civil Partnership Act created civil partnerships for same sex couples only.

When London based Claire Beale and Martin Loat became the first UK-based heterosexual couple to enter into a civil partnership last month,  it was hoped it may trigger further visits here by couples who want their relationship formally recognised but do not want to marry.
