Same sex couples in a civil partnership will be able to convert their union into a marriage at a Nottinghamshire County Council register office from this Wednesday (10th December).

Only same sex couples who are not in a civil partnership have been able to take advantage of gay marriage legislation, which came into effect from 29 March. Couples will simply have to attend a register office and sign a declaration that they both wish to convert their civil partnership to a marriage in front of a superintendent registrar. So far the council has carried out 49 same-sex marriages in the county.
