Discusses, in 2001, the then current position of transsexuals in the law. The Court of Appeal had applied the Corbett rule in the case of Bellinger v Bellinger, and the European Court of Human Rights were showing signs of impatience with the UK position on the matter. Bellinger was subsequently affirmed in the House of Lords, the European Court's patience snapped in 2002 and the Gender Recognition Act 2004 was passed.

Keywords:   Gender recognition, Change of gender, Marriage, Corbett v Corbett, Public policy, European Convention on Human Rights, Non-discrimination
