Number of marriages between two same-sex partners in Denmark 2012-2018 No new civil partnerships can be contracted in Denmark from 15th of June 2012 when same-sex marriage law was enacted. Since that year, the number of registered marriages in Denmark increased generally and amounted to roughly 32.5 thousand registrations in 2018. Among them, 480 marriages were between two same-sex partners; 293 female couples and 187 male couples got married.

By contrast, the number of divorces in Denmark was approximately half as high as the number of marriages in 2018. During that year, nearly 15 thousand divorces were registered and out of them, only 64 female couples and 34 male couples were divorced.
