Peru Must Recognise Overseas Same-Sex Marriages




A court in Peru has ruled that the country must recognise same-sex marriages formed overseas.

Peruvian national Oscar Ugarteche Galarza married his same-sex partner in Mexico City in 2010 but was unable to register his marital status on his passport because gay marriage is not recognised in Peru.

He decided to take legal action.

The Marilyn Stowe blog reported that judges presiding over the case had said that there was “a great part of society speaking out for the legal equality of homosexual couples” and that the “administration of justice has to be interpreted on the basis of changes to and the needs of our society”

The decision is likely to be appealed.
