A wedding registry has told a court it is refusing to register couples for the ceremony because of fears the couple’s relationship may be in danger of becoming a civil matter.
The Register of Wills (ROW) has decided not to take any cases from a married couple in the Isle of Wight, citing concerns the couple will not be able to live together or get married in the country.
It has been in effect since 2011 and is an important part of the country’s civil marriage system.
However, the decision has angered some members of the public, who believe it could lead to a civil dispute and the registrar may be forced to withdraw the case.
“We have to look at our relationship with the registracy.
The registraries are the people who are in the position of having to make the decisions about what happens in this country,” the registrant, who wished to remain anonymous, told the court.”
I think it’s the wrong approach, to be honest with you.”
If you are a couple living together, then I’m not sure what the problem is.
But I do think it would be an unfair thing to be going to a registry and being told that because you’re married it will be OK to take your case to court.
“The registrar’s decision follows the case of a man and woman from Wales who were married in England but had to move to the Isle in order to marry in Scotland.
The couple, who were separated when they separated, were unable to marry legally due to a lack of Irish citizenship.
Both were told by the registrants that they could not have the wedding in Scotland, where they were married, in their home country because they did not have sufficient Irish citizenship to do so.
However, they were unable even to get the documents required by the marriage certificate, which requires both parties to have at least one foreign citizen on their birth certificate.
The case was heard in January and has since been referred to the Court of Session, which will decide if there should be a new registry for the island.
A spokesperson for the registries said it was “not a case for change” and was looking to see if it could be reconsidered in the future.”
We want to make sure that all couples in the British Isles have the best chance of getting married in their own country.”
