A civil partnership is a recognised, legal union between two people of the same sex, which came into operation on 5 December 2005 with most of the rights, responsibilities and other consequences of marriage. Civil partnership registration in England and Wales is modelled on civil marriage and most provisions are similar or the same. Accordingly, gay or lesbian couples can now publicly register their relationship, showing their commitment to each other and both gain a number of rights and also acquire responsibility for each other.
Such rights and responsibilities extend, as in marriage to all aspects of the relationship, from finances to children. For example, where there are children in the family, civil partnerships enable the second partner to apply for parental responsibility; benefit applications will assess both partners; civil partners have next of kin rights and can now benefit from pension rights, inheritance tax provisions etc. in the same way as a married couple.
