I am in a same-sex marriage. My Husband & I got married in

Resolved Question:

I am in a same-sex marriage. My Husband & I got married in New York in June 2012. We live in Brooklyn but may move to England in a few years. Would our marriage be recognized in the UK and would it give him the right to work there? Would he be able to file for dual citizenship/hold a UK passport also? If so, is there any sense to starting an application while still in the U.S.? or do you have to be resident there?
