Milestone in Portugal

On May 4, 2010, I noted that Portugal, whose population is predominently Roman Catholic, was on the verge of approving gay marriage. (See “Progress in Portugal.”) That legalization is now a reality. According to the AP, the first gay couple, two divorced mothers, were wed yesterday in Lisbon. Additional details are available here.

  1. Hi, Lionel! Yes, it is true... And of corse lots of controversy... But things are going to the usual and that minority has no their rights in the law... But it is curious that their associations here weren't demanding a so clear gay marriage, but an intermediate structure to preserve both their rights and the interests of the conservative catholics... Things aren't so clear as we could think... But yes, it is a great progress!...

    Good evening!...
