Gay Marriage NOW coming to Uruguay.? Today while I was having my breakfast at Casa los Jazmines, to my surprise, Gay Marriage coming to Uruguay was one of the main topics of the Sunday edition of EL PAIS newspaper (among the most important in Uruguay), together with an very interesting article about Gay Adoption. It seems the domino effect once again is working between Argentina and Uruguay, and this time looks like it would be in favor to our community and rights. Uruguay already has the Civil Union, and soon I see the Gay Marriage passing. Both Lacalle and, for Sanguinetti former presidents of Uruguay pronounced their points of view in favor to same sex couples to be honored with the same rights as straight couples, with their own restrictions. Lacalle supports more the position of same rights without the use of the name or institution of Marriage, and is not in favor to the adoption. On the other hand, Sanguinetti, with a more liberal and pro gay attitude goes for the full rights.
So it seems that the new trend will be to GO SOUTH if you want to get married. And I at CM by Carlos Melia will be waiting to coordinate all the travel and wedding arrangements. It is an exciting time to be in this part of the world. CM
