Find out about getting married or forming a civil partnership.

Marriages

We are not responsible for registering marriages or for issuing certificates in Rother.

For more details and information on how to get married and where your local register office is, please see the East Sussex County Council website at:

Civil partnerships

Same sex couples are able to commit to each other in a civil partnership ceremony. 

Civil partnerships legally recognise gay and lesbian relationships. You must be single and over 16 to form one.

A civil partnership will give you the same legal rights as a married couple have in matters such as:

pensions
house ownership
inheritance
making decisions if one of you is in hospital
being able to register the death of a partner and to arrange the funeral.

For more details and information on your local register office please see the East Sussex County Council website at:
