  1. Good for Jersey. Better late than never.

    But really, Mr Ozouf: “not the same as marriage but it is an absolute equivalent to marriage”?

    Separate is not equal. Marriage is equivalent to marriage. Equality means marriage equality.

      Its a good step. Sometimes it difficult to get
      people to swallow too much change at the same time

      Denmark is changing RPs to marriage by june 15, Finland probably will do the same, Ireland supports changing their constitution to allow civil marriage 73%.

      Malta, England, Scotland, Au etc in play

      Perhaps the root of alll western relgiious hatred – the catholic churhc will do mankind a favor and follow Jim Jones (guiana back in the 1970s) stri8 to hell.

      Where hopefully some muslims will get even even more re the crusades.

        Oh hes – also malta is in play

  2. “…not the same as marriage but it is an absolute equivalent to marriage.”

    Thank goodness we don’t have judges who talk in riddles nowadays.

  3. Hopefully this will lead to full marriage soon.

    Next stop, full marriage and I hope that Guernsey is not far behind. Will Jersey and Guernsey recognise gay marriages performed in the UK proper if and when they become legal here?

      Probably not. They’ll do what we currently do, downgrade them to non-married CP’s until the islands catch up with marriage equality. Our UK CPs are not recognised in law as marriage, no matter how they similar they might be.

    Will the Channel Islands be swamped by a tsunami now that they are making progress in gay rights? I see that Pink News are prevents us from posting comments regarding the case of the five Muslim extremists who are currently up in court for distributing gay hate material in Derby. One of the leaflets warn that we will be hit by a tsunamin if we don’t mend our ways. Seems funny then that the part of Indonesia that keeps getting hit by tsunamis is Aceh Provence where homosexuality is illegal for Muslims! I am not being Islamophobic, I think God is trying to tell them something.

  6. I cast my mind back a decade or two and remember fondly a massive fondle (and a bit more…no, an awful lot more) with a Jersais in St Brelades bay.
    He was certainly liberated and I am glad that this small island is nudging ahead of its adopted parent.

    If any of you fancy getting married over in Jersey and need a hand, please get in touch.
