Same-sex marriage. History

Same-sex marriage — let’s talk about facts and history.

Back in 1989, Denmark became the only country in the European Union, and throughout the world, where same-sex unions were officially recognized.

Then these unions were called «registered partnerships.»

There were certain restrictions — one of the partners had to have citizenship of this country.

Today, same-sex marriages for non-EU residents can also be registered here, in Denmark.

For same-sex partners, it was very difficult to officially register their relationship.

Already in the spring of 2012, the registration of same-sex marriage in Denmark was legally permitted.

Now, non-residents of this country can officially register their relationship. To date, the list of countries where gay marriage is allowed has been expanded.

Same sex marriage countries

In 2020, same-sex marriage is permitted in 29 countries. Read more about same-sex LGBT marriages on Wikipedia.

These are such countries: Denmark, Portugal, Iceland, etc.

Also popular with same-sex couples is the civil partnership registration service. Such a union is equivalent to official marriage, but there are differences. A couple who has registered a civil partnership does not have a couple to adopt children. We help same-sex couples register a civil partnership in Cyprus.
