What is a Civil Union?

 

It amounts to same sex marriage, now perfectly lawful and established in New Zealand.

 

The Civil Union Act 2004 provides the criteria, rules and processes for two people to have their relationship solemnised as a civil union (by way of a formal ceremony) and officially registered in New Zealand. A Civil Union may be entered into by couples of the same sex or by couples of different sexes.

Civil unions registered in New Zealand may be legally recognised in other countries, depending on the laws of that country.
