Notice of Intended Marriage
When the Marriage Act changed to remove the prohibition on couples who do not fit into the old “a man and a woman” definition of marriage, a new item was added to the Notice of Intended Marriage. Initially described as Sex, on September 1, 2021, when the Notice form was updated it became Gender, and answering the question became optional.

There are three options for Gender: ‘Male’, ‘Female’ and ‘Non-Binary’ .

PS you can use either a Tick or a Cross to mark the box - but a cross is usually neater!
