The ringing endorsement of marriage for same-sex couples by 1.2 million people in the South of Ireland last week has fuelled calls for the North to follow suit.

Northern Ireland stands alone in the British Isles as the only country where gay marriage is not legal. Most of Western Europe have also adopted the measure.

Last month the Assembly rejected the fourth attempt to introduce same-sex marriage after 51 MLAs voted against the Sinn Féin motion.

It could now be left to the courts to bring the North up to date with the rest of Ireland and the UK after a gay Northern Irish couple, who recently got married in England, launched a legal effort in January to have their marriage recognised in the North.

But do you think same-sex marriage should become law in Northern Ireland? Vote above.

THE POLL WILL CLOSE 4PM WEDNESDAY (MAY 27) – SEE THURSDAY’S ULSTER HERALD FOR THE FINAL RESULT
