Steinfeld and Keidan -v- Secretary of State for Education

Steinfeld and Keidan -v- Secretary of State for Education | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it
Since the introduction of same-sex marriage on
29 March 2014, same-s
ex couples have had
the choice of entering either into civil partne
rships or into marriage. In contrast, the Civil
Partnerships Act 2004 currently bars opposi
te-sex couples from entering into civil
partnerships, and therefore the only status open
to such couples wishing to formalise their
relationship is marriage, alth
ough the Marriage (Same-Sex Co
uples) Act 2013 required a
review of the operation and future of civil partnership.
The Court of Appeal has dismissed the appeal of Rebecca Steinfeld and Charles Keidan
against an earlier High Court decision refusing th
em judicial review of the Secretary of State’s
decision not - at this stage - to propose an
y change to the bar on opposite-sex couples
entering into a civil partnership.
