Written by

Last week, one had the question: Are Canadian marriages legal? A federal lawyer had indeed said the opposite following the case of a lesbian couple from Florida and England, where gay marriage is not legalized, and who wanted to divorce. The Canadian government finally announced gay marriages are legal and according to National PostNational Post, it will change the law to legally recognize the marriages of thousands of foreign gay couples, even if the laws of their home country do not.

"I want to make it very clear that, in our government’s view, these marriages should be valid," Justice Minister Rob Nicholson said at a news conference in Toronto. "We will change the Civil Marriage Act so that any marriages performed in Canada that aren’t recognized in the couple’s home jurisdiction will be recognized in Canada."
