Marriage Act 2015 enacted

The Thirty-fourth Amendment of the Constitution which was approved at a referendum on 22 May 2015 paved the way for Ireland to become the first country to legalise same-sex marriage through a popular vote. The Marriage Act 2015 which allows marriage of same-sex couples was commenced on November 10th 2015. Civil Partnerships are no longer available to couples in Ireland since the Act has come into law. Couples who have an existing civil partnership will be able to get married. Same-sex couples who have married abroad will have those marriages recognised by the Irish state.
