Gays Cut The Line To Score Ireland’s First Civil Partnership Ceremonies (Because They Could Die)

With Ireland’s civil partnership law requires couples to wait three months after registering to receive their license, the soonest gays there can wed (with all marriage benefits except tax equality) would theoretically be April 1, since the earlier they could register was Jan. 1. But with judges able to grant waivers for compassionate reasons, it’s believed illness-stricken couples have already received their certificates and tied the knot. At least two couples, each with a member whose ailments could claim their lives before April, reportedly received their partnership certificates and held private ceremonies. (They are different from Glenn Cunningham and Adriano Vilar, whose previous Northern Ireland civil partnership ceremony let them skip the line.)
