    Marriage is a unique legal status conferred by and recognised by governments the world over. It brings with it a host of reciprocal obligations, rights and protections. Yet it is more than the sum of its legal parts; it is also a cultural institution. The word itself is a fundamental protection, conveying clearly that you and your life partner love each other. It represents the ultimate expression of love and commitment between two people, and everyone understands that. No other word has that power, and no other word can provide that protection.

    In Ireland, the family (with or without children) based in marriage is protected by the Constitution from attack, and must be "guarded with special care". This means that other families (with or without children) do not have this special, elevated and protected status in Irish law.

    Civil marriage is not the same as religious marriage. Religious marriage is a ceremony in a church, but it is followed by the signing of the civil marriage register, which is the civil (or legally binding) part. A civil marriage takes place in a registry office or other approved venue, and has nothing to do with religion.Spot on,.

    Short answer, not a lot in law unless you are religious.

    Let me be 100% clear here. Even if you get married in a church it means fuck all unless you have it recognised in law, civil law.

    You could get married in a church, and refuse to sign the civil register.

    What happens then?

    When you go to vote - a marriage certificate is proof enough to vote, a civil partnership certificate isn't.

    The difference is some couples can say "we're married" and others can only say "we're civil partners"

    discrimination.
