HALIFAX, UNITED KINGDOM - MARCH 29: Helen Brearley (L) and Teresa Millward hold hands during their wedding ceremony at Halifax Register Office, the day gay marriage becomes legal on March 29, 2014 in Halifax, United Kingdom. Same sex couples have been able to enter into 'civil partnerships' since 2005, however following a change in the law in July 2013 gay couples are now eligible to marry in England and Wales. A number of gay couples have arranged for their wedding ceremonies to take place shortly after midnight on March 29, 2014 to become some of the first to take advantage of the new law. Parliament's decision to grant same sex couples an equal right to marriage has been met with opposition from religious groups. Gay marriage is currently being debated in Scotland, however the Northern Ireland administration has no plans to make it law. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
