Brazil Supreme Court Allowed A Lesbian Marriage

Written by 

In Brazil, the Supreme Court confirmed a civil wedding between 2 lesbians.

It is by a vote of 4-1 that the court ordered that the constitution "makes it possible for stable civil unions to become marriages" as reports News24.

In a statement, the court said that "sexual orientation should not serve as a pretext for excluding families from the legal protection that marriage represents".

Gay marriage is not legalized in Brazil, it is only one case but that could nevertheless play an important part.

For the moment, Argentina remains the only country of South America to have legalized the gay marriage but who knows, Brazil could become the next one.
