A same-sex marriage by civil partners does not revoke wills after December 2014

Wills for civil partners not revoked on conversion:  A new government regulation amends the Wills Act 1837 which states that marriage revokes all wills:  in the case of a previously existing civil partnership, a same-sex marriage will not have the effect of revoking wills that were written whilst the couples were registered civil partners.  This regulation will come into force in December 2014
