Same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland may be an obstacle to coalition deal

The Telegraph is reporting that, in the wake of the General Election result, the Democratic Unionist Party's resistance to the introduction of same-sex marriage may pose an obstacle to any attempt by the Conservatives to forge a coalition with the party.

Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, said in 2016 that the party would block same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland for at least another five years. Northern Ireland is the only remaining part of the UK where same-sex marriage is not legal.
