The Downing St. resignations came as May worked to fill jobs in her minority government and replace ministers who lost their seats on Thursday.
The fallout from Thursday's snap general election, which left her Conservative Party bereft of their majority, also prompted her to seek out a relatively tiny ally that could have vast sway over what happens next in the United Kingdom.
They are a party that has consistently blocked efforts in the Northern Ireland Assembly to allow same sex marriage, despite a majority of it voting in favour, as they have used a mechanism known as a petition of concern, that forces an even greater majority to vote in favour of a law being passed, however they lost this power at the last General Election in March. France said the election result would not call into question Britain's decision to exit. And I think pretty much everyone thinks it is only a matter of time before she either resigns or is forced out by her own party.
"That's what people voted for last June". We have worked well with May.
Office worker Christina Kelly, 38, described the result as "not exactly an ideal situation" but said it would likely focus more attention on Northern Ireland and particularly how Brexit would affect the region.
Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, who is gay, said on Saturday that she has received assurances from May over gay rights should the Tories strike a deal with DUP.
Fallon said: "Just because they are agreeing to support us on the big economic and security issues facing this country it doesn't mean that we now agree with all of their views". That is why the European Union wants the talks to go smoothly.
Given that Britain has already triggered the formal divorce talks, it is unclear what mechanism could be used to delay the negotiations. I'm very proud to lead this party.
United Kingdom prime minister makes Cabinet appointments
"Other personnel issues are for other days", she said when asked about their future.
After confirming on Friday that her top five ministers, including finance minister Philip Hammond, would keep their jobs, May must name the rest of her team, who will take on one of the most demanding jobs in recent British history.
Labour won 262 seats in the general election, but the Conservatives remain the largest party in Parliament with 318 seats.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he could still be prime minister, although his party has no obvious way to build a majority coalition.
Sky's political editor Faisal Islam said: "This is the most extraordinary balancing act".
To keep within the timeframe, the European Union nations "need a draft agreement before end of October next year", to have enough time to push it through their own decision-making process. She was confident that she would strengthen her party's authority, increase its hold on parliament and, in doing so, its ability to negotiate Brexit without real opposition.
"So a fascinating time - Theresa May staring down the camera lens and telling the country: "I am still in charge".
But the wooing of the DUP risks upsetting the political balance in Northern Ireland by aligning London more closely with the pro-British side in the divided province, where a power-sharing government with Irish nationalists is now suspended.
"If they are going to squeeze out some concession from the Tories, is that concession going to frustrate Sinn Fein to the point where the prospect of devolution disappears and there is direct rule from Westminster again in Northern Ireland". The DUP's politicians have also been at the center of some serious corruption scandals involving property and the bias distribution of government contracts.
