I am an EU citizen and started work in the UK a couple of weeks ago. I am planning to stay here for at least 5 years, if not more.
My non-civil relationship with my boyfriend (same-sex couple) started a year ago. He is a non-EU citizen (he does NOT need a visa TO VISIT the UK). We are planning for him to join me in the UK in the near future (approximately 2 years).
The problem is, neither of our home countries approve of any kind of legal partnership between same sex couples.
How can I bring my non-EU partner in the UK when I can't get married with him outside the UK? I would like to mention that I will qualify for the minimum income threshold currently in place for UK citizens willing to marry non-EU citizens. Because of Brexit I will probably need to meet those income and language requirements too. Also, his level of English is very good (C1/C2).
Can anyone crack this one? Is there any possibility at all for us to, perhaps, get married in the UK after I have lived there for like a year or so?
