The DUP, Northern Ireland's largest party, is staunchly opposed to same-sex marriage on religious grounds and argues that the institution should be between a man and a woman. While same-sex couples were able to get married earlier in the year, the initial reforms excluded those already in a civil-partnership. In October, Northern Ireland minister Robin Walker introduced the new regulations to parliament, allowing people in civil partnerships to get married retrospectively.
