ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI– Premier and Minister of Finance, Dr the Hon Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) has announced a special referendum on the matter of same-sex marriages in the Virgin Islands (VI) to allow the local electorate to consider and decide on the question of whether same-sex marriage should be legal in the territory.

The Premier in a statement released today, Monday, December 19, 2022, said the referendum was decided at a special meeting of Cabinet held on Friday, December 16, 2022, where Cabinet members have decided to refer the matter to the local electorate.

“This will be the first referendum in the history of the Virgin Islands. It will be held at some point after our general elections, so that the question can be considered without distraction.”

He added that this referendum will also give those with strong views on the matter, including the local religious community, the opportunity to defend what they believe to be socially and morally right. 

The decision to head to a local referendum comes as a case is being heard in the High Court, which potentially can impact the social and religious fabric of the VI society. 

Legal case on matter currently in Courts - Premier 

“A same-sex couple, both Virgin Islanders, were married abroad, and have mounted a legal challenge to have their union legally recognized here in the Virgin Islands.  If they were to be successful, section 13(1)(c) of the Matrimonial Proceedings and Property Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, would be declared as unconstitutional and, therefore, null and void.  As a result, same-sex marriage would become legal in the Virgin Islands,” the Premier said.

In June 2022, Kinisha Forbes and Kirsten Lettsome sued the Government of the Virgin Islands, claiming that they were denied a marriage license from the Registrar General because they were a same-sex couple.

The Premier said that in response to the legal challenge, the Virgin Islands Government, who is the respondent in this case, through counsel assigned by the Attorney General’s Chambers, is vigorously defending the local laws, which clearly define marriage between a man and a woman.

Dr Wheatley added that the referendum will also consider the question of whether the state should introduce new legislation that would provide any person in a domestic partnership certain legal rights, such as the ability to pass on one’s estate to their partner regardless of sex. 

“This approach would satisfy our obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights, while protecting the sanctity of marriage,” he added.

      When ones’ behavior is against God and nature itself the evil and rebellious hearts of men sanctions the deed and not because the deed is right, but because men feel that they are gods themselves! That no voice is greater than their own, not even their creator! Remember, we are only on this earth for a little while and we don’t know anything else but our own limited reality. Yet Jesus is with each generation and He has made rules His creation must all follow and if nature submits, why is man rebellious? Because man is all together evil and lives in denial. There is no one good but God and His ways are supreme and right! Men were created to follow the ways of God. A man can never lead God! It’s impossible!!!

      May it never be! Yes, let God be found true, but every man a liar. As it is written, "That you might be justified in your words, and might prevail when you come into judgment." Romans 3:4

    Yes! Let the people decide. Marriage is between a man and a woman in order to build the society and the country. I respect the rights of adults to live their lives so let them have “same sex unions” with the rights that come with unions. BUT do not allow them to adopt children. Their union cannot produce children and they need to honor the reality of their decisions. DO NOT EXPOSE INNOCENT LITTLE CHILDREN TO SOMETHING THEY CANNOT UNDRSTAND AND WILL CONFUSE THEM, NOT FAIR! ????????

    Sowande needs to focus on the actual issues that the people of the BVI are facing, same sex marriage is not an issue that is plaguing the Territory. How about him and his administration put attention towards CCTV cameras in the Territory that help solve crimes. How about finding ways to diversify the economy. There are multiple issues that are of greater importance.

    The UK Parliament has the unlimited power to legislate for the Overseas Territories and because of this move I presume that there will be legislative intervention by the UK Government. If it was not for UK legislative intervention then homosexuality would still be illegal to this day so trust in believe the UK will step in, as they should.

    The BVI cannot brag about being a modern day society with a high GDP if their laws do not reflect and protect all members of society. Our legislation needs to be in compliance with international obligations. This is why the Territory is not ready for independence because we have a Premier that is more concerned about how people should live in their private lives rather than actual issues that are plaguing the Territory.

        And so they were at that time. We are to look to Jesus the Lord of all for righteousness.

        (When people asked Jesus about marriage, He told them to remember what Genesis said about God’s plan for marriage (Matthew 19:1-12). So, in this sense, Jesus did have something to say about homosexual partnerships. God only blessed sex within the committed marriage relationship of a man and a woman.)

These are our times - but it is the parent's role to protect and raise children. Good kids have good parents.

But this whole nonsense of drags have intercourse and the other party not knowing - like what 0.000001%? There are not enough transpersons to make that a common occurrence! You're on the margins with tyrannies.

    As first described in Genesis and later affirmed by Jesus, marriage is a God-ordained, covenant relationship between a man and a woman. This lifelong, sexually exclusive relationship brings children into the world and thus sustains the stewardship of the earth.

    So how does a referendum 'let the people' decide?
    In South Africa this went on for decades. A small group decided what the rules and laws were for the majority. The right to love and be able to have say over someone incapacitated is a basic human right. Banning legal standing for same sex couples takes away insurance, inheritance, hospital visitation and ability to provide instruction for care if that person can not speak for themselves.
    Please UK, come in and stop this nonsense.

    If the Lettsome/ Forbes case prevails, then the question is whether a referendum and government law can supercede the court. A court judgment that may deem the law is against the constitutional right of the citizen could potentially nullify any law passed.

    A constitutionally due election is due sometime this coming spring. Why can’t this referendum be on the same ballot? The general election will draw the most people. Being on the same ballot as the general election will provide more eye balls on the issue than on a separate ballot. Additionally, it will save time and cost. I can see independence or other self-determination choice being on a separate ballot/referendum. By the way, when is the referendum on independence, free association, integration, etc? That is a more urgent and important issue than same sex marriage. The referendum will be held after the election. If Unity Government does not form the next government, will the referendum decision be binding on the next government. If the Premier want to get a read on the will of the people before acting and wanting to take action on his watch, why not hold a refreshment now. It is simple referendum.

    It is absolutely crazy for how many DL men and women in the BVI for y'all to be this against it! If you only knew how many of your close friends and family like the same sex on the low! It is the same set on the media screaming "BURN A BATTI" that does eat the most of it! I'm ready for the conversation cause this is exactly why sites like MIKA BARRY WILL ALWAYS FLOURISH! Alyo would not allow people to be themselves in this place! That is why your GFs BFs wives and husbands saucing the same sex on your heads... forever

      Regardless of the small percentage…is that grounds for imposing laws against God? Do you have no regard for God? What… do you believe that you are God? Life is short repent before judgment comes upon you, and you have to face your maker! Don’t let the seduction of evil fool you into losing your very soul!

    Do we have legislation in the BVI that enable/permit public referendums? Without such legislation the results of any referendum may be non-binding to say the least.

    What is the difference? To me sin is sin. The blood of young men crying out on the street , human sacrifice, satanic churches, employees having employee under slavery in this day and age, incest, adultery fornication, lying stealing and the list goes on. The ten commandments remain the same. You all think
    covid-19 deaths which is still very, very sad in my opinion. Also Irma and Maria were bad. You all keep it up. Please know people that GOD HATE SIN. He can and will do as he pleases. If we believe in God. Pray, aryo pray for this country. Too many wrong things is taking place in Tortola. GOD IS NOT PLEASED.

    should be a referendum of the entire population, not just those who are entitled to vote in elections

    Homosexuality has been secretely prevalent in the Virgin Islands. Back in the 50's, 60's and 70's there used to be some known homosexual men in society, but because it was frowned upon publicly some socalled prominent men in Road Town hid their wutliness. Dr.Q.W.Osborn was the only one who didn't did his lust for man sex.
