Same sex marriage re-banned Just months after gay couples in Bermuda were allowed to marry under a Supreme Court ruling, the island country's government reimposed a ban under a new law.

Member of Parliament Lawrence Scott said the Domestic Partnerships Act of 2017 helps the LGBTQ community by giving gay couples "benefits it has been asking for," while keeping traditionalists happy because it doesn't change the the "traditional definition of marriage."

"As it stands now, they can have the name marriage but without the benefits. But after this bill passes, they have the benefits and just not the name marriage. The benefits are what they really want," Scott said, the Royal Gazette reported.

The bill passed Bermuda's Parliament 24-10.

According to Pink News, Bermuda became the first country to re-ban gay marriage.
