Legal Recognition Same-sex Marriage List

Where can I go for a legal marriage? Will that does depend on what your needs are . There are different levels of same sex recognition. They ranged from fallout marriage to domestic partnerships. You may also need to ask yourself what effect it will have on your status at home. Some locations recognize outside of the status and others do not.

The Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Spain, Norway, and Sweden are the only countries in which the status of same-sex marriages are exactly the same as that of opposite-sex marriages, though South Africa is due to fully harmonize its marriage laws. Nepal's highest court, in November 2008, issued final judgment on matters related to LGBT rights. Based on the court recommendation the government announced its intention to introduce a same-sex marriage bill by 2010.
