Same-Sex Marriage in Spain

by Editors in History & Politics , 03 september 2004

Recently the Spanish parliament has passed a bill which urges the new government to change the laws in such a way that a marriage between same-sex couples will become possible. It is expected that the parliament will pass these changed laws sometime next year.

"It is a challenge for the government to remove an unjust dividing line," said minister Lopez Aguilar after meeting a delegation from gay pressure groups.

At his inauguration in April, Prime Minister, Rodriguez Zapatero announced his intention to implement major changes in connection with social and ethic issues. He promised his voters that he would fight against discrimination of women and gay people.

The Pope, John Paul II, notified the Spanish Prime Minister that he opposes these plans, because they are a danger to the traditional family.
