Official figures from the Office for National Statistics have revealed just over 1,400 same-sex marriages took place in the first three months of the new law. Of these, 56% were female couples and 44% were male. The Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 was introduced in England and Wales on 29 March this year. The figures from ONS are the first official assessment of the popularity of the law change. Around 120,000 people in civil partnerships - which were introduced in 2005 - will have the option of converting their union to a marriage from 10 December.
