The Act received Royal Assent in November 2004 and is expected to come into force in late 2005/early 2006.
The purpose of the Act is to remedy the discrimination present in existing legislation, against gay and lesbian couples. It provides civil partners with the same rights and obligations as spouses and provides same sex couples who do not register as civil partners, with the same rights and obligations as unmarried opposite sex couples.
