Abstract:

Developments nationally and internationally have focused attention on the question of whether the traditional concept of marriage can survive the challenge from those who seek to extend the right to marry to same-sex couples, using laws relating to human rights and non-discrimination. This article examines the basis on which the law now acknowledges the right of transsexuals to marry in their ‘acquired' gender and asks whether the same reasoning may be applied to same-sex couples.
