Number of marriages between two same-sex partners in Denmark 2012-2019

No new civil partnerships can be contracted in Denmark since the 15th of June 2012, when same-sex marriage law was enacted. In the years following the new law, the number of registered marriages in Denmark increased generally, and amounted to roughly 30.6 thousand in 2019. Among these, 405 marriages were between two same-sex partners; 237 female couples and 168 male couples got married.

Divorces

In contrast, the number of divorces in Denmark was approximately a third of the number of marriages in 2019. During that year, around 10 thousand divorces were registered and out of them, only 64 female couples and 34 male couples were divorced.

Marriages in Norway

In Norway, the number of contracted marriages decreased from 2009 to 2018. Almost 83 thousand marriages were registered in 2018. Among the homosexual couples, the situation was similar as it was in Denmark; most same-sex marriages were between women. By the end of this period, 192 female couples and 139 male couples were married. Norway's Marriage Act made same-sex marriages legal in 2009.
