Vietnam legalizes gay weddings

Vietnam has legalized gay weddings.

The south-eastern Asian country has officially allowed same-sex couples to organize weddings and have the right to live together.

While the unions won’t be legally recognized as marriages, gay rights campaigners believe it is a large small step on the path to equal rights.

The Government has taken this step after two fines were handed out to a gay and lesbian couple who chose to have a marriage ceremony in the southern provinces of Kien Giang and Ca Mau.

The couples were charged with holding a ceremony ‘contrary to the habits and customs of Vietnam’ and the Law on Marriage & Family of Vietnam which bans marriage between persons of the same sex.

But now with the changing of the law, gay weddings will no longer be illegal.

After starting consultations with relevant departments in summer 2012, same-sex marriage itself was due to be voted on in May this year.

But despite some government ministers saying they support equal marriage, the vote was delayed.

Justice Minister Ha Hung Cuong believes a gradual transition towards same-sex marriage is the best way to achieve the reform.

It is believed the next step will be to equalize the age at which men and woman can get married. Currently the marriageable age for boys is 20 and 18 for girls.

Le Quang Binh, gay rights activist and ISEE director, said: ‘We are going the right way in the fight for same-sex marriage.

‘This might be the first step, but it will still change people’s lives for the better.’

In different countries we have found several supportive programs on same sex marriage. Therefore same sex marriage such as gay marriage and lesbian marriage are found even common in these countries. Here also we have found gay marriage is legalized in Vietnam. And slowly this concept is widely spread in different other countries also. Although for a wedding ceremony we need to go for better planning through professional and creative ideas.
