Extend notice of marriage period for those wedding/couples affected by Covid-19

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


So many weddings have been postponed due to the current pandemic. (I myself was due to get married tomorrow - 9th April) 

Whilst it may seem trivial to some, many couples have spent years planning for one special day. 

As it currently stand couples in the UK are required to give notice of marriage. This notice lasts for a 12month period. With many couples having to reschedule there weddings this means many have to give notice again. This will add strain on the registras As they will have a back log of couples who weren't affected needing to give notice as well as so sadly having a large number of deaths to register. 

I'm asking that the government extend the notice of marriage period to 18months to help us all out!
