Bermuda’s Legislature Votes to Re-Ban Same-Sex Marriage

Bermuda’s Senate voted on Wednesday to re-ban same-sex marriage, five days after the House of Assembly did the same. The legislation, the Domestic Partnership Act, would permit domestic partnerships and outlaw same-sex marriage. The bill now heads to the governor’s desk. The legislature’s actions come just seven months after a court ruling legalized gay marriage there. If the Domestic Partnership Act becomes law, Bermuda would be the first jurisdiction in the world to revert after legalizing same-sex marriage.
