Civil Partnerships: the latest figures show an increase in civil partnerships

The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics [ONS] show a slight increase in the number of civil partnerships entered into in 2010, when the number of gay and lesbian couples wanting to formalise their relationship in the UK increased to 6,385. The latest figures mean that since the Civil Partnership Act came into force back on December 5, 2005, over 30,000 people have entered into civil partnerships - although 2006 saw the peak for entering into a civil partnership, with over 16,000 being formed in that year alone – presumably taking up the huge backlog that built up over many years.

2006 and 2007 saw noticeably more females entering into civil partnerships than males – but since then the figures have settle down with roughly the same number of male and female civil partnerships being formed every year.


Civil partnership divorce rises

Unsurprisingly, the number of civil partnership dissolution is also gradually creeping up – as more and more civil partnerships are entered into and as they start to mature.  2010 saw the highest number of dissolutions to date – 509 in the UK. Civil partnership dissolution (or civil partnership divorce as is commonly known) is only available for those who have been in a registered civil partnership for a least a year.

Earlier statistics showed that marriages continue to be on the decrease –231,490 couples got hitched in 2009, the lowest figure since back in 1985. 2009 also saw an increase in the number of people seeking divorce – up to 113,949.
