Costa Rica News – The consulate of the United Kingdom in Costa Rica is awaiting the Government’s decision on whether they can officiate same sex marriages in their Paseo Colon headquarters.
This would be available to any British citizen and their partner from any country.
The marriages would be recognized in Britain but not on the Costa Rican Registry.
The possibility of gay marriages to occur on Costa Rican soil represents a breakthrough in human rights nonetheless.
While Costa Ricans still do not have the ability to marry someone of the same sex, gay rights are improving little by little.
The sexual identity has been taken off of ID cards, conjugal visits in prison are allowed for same-sex couples, and a gay couple in a formal relationship can share medical insurance.
