Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the constitutionality of same sex marriages. I thought it would be interesting to look at what other countries have done with regard to this issue in the 21st century.
Below you will find a listing of foreign countries which have recognized same-sex marriages or civil unions. Included is the effective, passage date or approval date of the legislation and links to official texts or news sources which discuss the legislation and may include links to the text.
