Northern Ireland remains one of the only Western European countries to still not have full marriage equality – despite it being legal in the south of Ireland, and the mainland UK. The DUP (Democratic Unionist Party) have resisted attempts to introduce same-sex marriage through the years, utilising the ‘petition of concern’ to veto legislative changes.
