In relation to our last post about gay divorce in the US, The Telegraph has an article about gay divorce in the UK:
"Almost 50,000 same-sex couples have formalised their relationships since civil partnerships were introduced in December 2005.
During 2010, 6,385 civil partnerships were registered in the UK, 100 more than in 2009, the Office for National Statistics said.
However, as growing numbers of couples register their partnerships, the number splitting up has also risen.
Last year, 509 civil partnerships were dissolved across the UK, an increase of 44% since 2009, when 353 couples separated.
In order to obtain a dissolution, a couple must have been in either a registered civil partnership or a same-sex partnership recognised abroad or 12 months." Read the rest of the article here.
