Bermudan government ‘will implement’ gay marriages after the court’s ruling


After the first gay couple was allowed to tie the knot in Bermuda, the country agreed not to oppose same-sex marriages anymore. Minister of Home Affairs Patricia Gordon Pamplin stated that the government is not going to challenge the court’s decision by means of appeals: “The Government acknowledges the Supreme Court ruling handed down on Friday last and upon legal advice, we have determined that we will not lodge an appeal against the judgment. While we accept that wide spread support of this very sensitive and emotive issue of marriage equality is difficult to achieve, we do, however, recognize that as a community we must be able to have open and honest conversations which help to encourage awareness, understanding, tolerance and respect for one another. We will abide by the decision of the judiciary, and will implement the necessary steps to ensure compliance with the judgement.”
