Since 2006, the Czech Republic has only offered civil unions for same-sex couples. However, a bill has recently been introduced in the House with the aim of legalizing marriage equality in the country.
In North Carolina's Qualla Boundary, the Eastern Band of Cherokee has announced that they will not acknowledge same-sex marriages. This choice has disheartened those who hoped that the tribe would follow the lead of other states and tribes that have already embraced marriage equality.
While the U.S. presidential election held us in suspense for a week, another significant question loomed: whether Nevada voters would embrace the recognition of marriage equality in their state's constitution.
In Switzerland, LGBTQ couples would like to enjoy the same benefits as straight couples, benefits to which they don’t lay claim to as equal marriage isn’t legal and same-sex partnerships, which were legalized in January 2007, don’t provide complete equality of rights.
The marriage equality movement in the United States has been gaining momentum for years and support for same-sex marriage has grown steadily.
A new poll shows that support is higher than it’s ever been before. It also reveals that even those who are against marriage equality have grown more accepting towards the idea over time, which is good news!
