Tax here for "partnered" people will be better if they are using same rules as for straight civil registrations.

With laws they are probably exactly the same as the north, as they copy all the laws from England.

The adoption laws have not been updated yet.

There is no gay marriage in Republic. There is only civil partnerships, they wont come into law until the president signs the bill and the revenue sort out their computer systems, so prob first one will be in Jan 2011.

Bump, Who here, has become more interested in the struggles of the minority in NI and taken more of an interest since Brexit and the Unionists behaviour of late?

These are 3 very different categories, and none is a « minority... »

I though you meant the no religion and the other religions... or other groups (non religious based, including Traveling identity, sexual and gender minorities, language, socio-economic, et al. )
There is hardly 1% between catholics and protestants in last census... and both are around 41%.

You started with “the struggles of the minority in NI”.
You could say “in the World, and NI is in the world”, going by your logic.

You were talking about minorities in NI, not the UK or the world, and 40% is not a minority...

You started with “the minority in NI” (and blurred the lines between politics, religion, churches and social movements), suggesting that 40% of NI was a minority in NI.

When that did not wash you tried to semantically slide towards “but they are a minority in the UK”... which is different: Ulster Unionists are also a minority in the UK, in the same proportions...

And the Orange Order itself is more of a minority in NI itself, than the “republican movements”...

These people might have struggles, but not because of their “minority status”. Once they overtake the “otherside” by virtue of demographics alone, they will be the ruling majority in NI...
