Main points
  • In 2020, there were 7,566 opposite-sex civil partnerships formed in England and Wales, of which 7,208 were registered in England and 358 were registered in Wales; this is the first year that civil partnerships between opposite-sex couples have been reported.

  • Around three-quarters (73%) of same-sex civil partnerships formed in England and Wales in 2020 were to couples where both partners had never been in a marriage or civil partnership before; however, for opposite-sex partnerships, this was just over half (52%).
  • In 2020, the average (median) age at civil partnership for opposite-sex couples was 58.9 years for men and 56.3 years for women; for same-sex couples, the average ages at civil partnership were lower (49.8 years and 50.1 years respectively).
  • Less than one in five (19%) of those entering a same-sex civil partnership in England and Wales in 2020 were aged 65 years and over; in contrast, 29% of those entering an opposite-sex civil partnership were aged 65 years and over.
