Here in Canada we just celebrated the tenth anniversary of the legalization of same sex marriage. This was after many decades of fighting various governments through the courts and winning each case province by province until the issue wound up in the Supreme Court. The court ruled it discriminatory to deny civil rights to people based on their sexual orientation. In spite of the fear-mongering of right wing religious fundamentalists, the sky has not fallen in nor has the institution of marriage been diminished. I was wondering what laws other countries have around gay marriages, either good or bad, and how the battle is going around the world.
