Same-Sex Marriages in Spain at White Wedding Day.
Getting together for same-sex couples has become easier now.
Marriages have become now more common between same-sex couples in Spain.
Spain was the third country in the world to legalise same sex marriages, and as with other civil ceremonies in Spain, one of the couple must be registered as a Spanish citizen for the ceremony to be legalised. If however you would prefer a blessing, which many do choose, then as with other blessing ceremonies, it’s simply a case of picking the venue. These blessings can be suited to the couple individually making them personal and unique.
“Same-sex marriage in Spain has been legal since 3 July 2005. In 2004, the nation’s newly elected social democratic government, led by Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, began a campaign for its legalization, including the right of adoption by same-sex couples. After much debate, a law permitting same-sex marriage was passed by the Cortes Generales (Spain’s bicameral parliament, composed of the Senate and the Congress of Deputies) on 30 June 2005 and published on 2 July 2005. The law took effect the next day, making Spain the third country in the world to allow same-sex couples to marry, after the Netherlands and Belgium, and 17 days ahead of Canada.” (Source: Wikipedia)
