Same sex couples have also had the option of entering a civil partnership since 2005 which gives couples the same legal protection as they would do if they were married. Civil partners can choose to convert their partnership into a marriage. If the relationship breaks down, civil partners dissolve their partnership rather than divorce but the process and principles involved are virtually the same.
