For some reason, the link above missed bits - it should read

I've been away for a week and so haven't had a chance to revisit BUT........

I went on to the GRC website to see if it has been updated to reflect the changes in same sex marriages. It has. However, there is something which bothers me. It mentions that if you are already in a marriage, it calls this a Protected Marriage. Then it goes on to say that if you are in a Protected Marriage, that you have to wait until 6 years post-op before you can be granted a GRC. Please anybody, tell me that I've got the wrong end of the stick - that just doesn't make sense, if a marriage were going to fail then surely it would have done so during the RLE period?

Here's the link:-

I'll wait and see what you all have to say first but I may contact them direct again to find out whether this is the case or not.

Thanks Caitlin,

I see what you mean. I hope you are right too, I would hate to have to wait for six years and could see no reason why that would be the case. Thanks again.

I'm sad that GRCs are such a thorny issue to navigate. I'm not sure why it should be such a big deal for someone to legally change their sex, especially when they've been on hormones and even had surgery, had official documents e.g. passport, driving licence etc issued in their female identity and so on. Although the GRC can be obtained without a hitch, it does seem that there are so many unnecessary ways that an applicant can be tripped up and you have to wonder about a system that admits its pedantic and doesn't like to communicate. Seriously, wtf?

I've no idea why it's like this. Even if it's some paranoia about fraud prevention there are more effective and less intrusive ways of doing it. This is just stupid.

I wonder if one day our society will ever become more enlightened and not force people through this idiotic, expensive and bureaucratic nightmare.
