Vietnam Didn't Approve Marriage Equality

Written by

The decision of the Parliament of Vietnam on marriage equality has been made and, unfortunately, this is not good news.

The National Assembly should amend the Family and Marriage law, but only the part about the family was amended to allow surrogacy, only for married couples without children.

However, no change was made to the section on marriage to include the right to the equal marriage and the right to a recognition.

60% of lawmakers approve this decision.

A poll had yet revealed in 2013 that 51% of Vietnamese support legal recognition of same-sex unions and 57% even support that same-sex couples raise children.
