    Paraguay will take a bit of work to make it move on this front, but they will have to change as the other nations around them allow same-sex couples to marry. Well done to Señores Simon y Lopez for making sure this is news. Sometimes simply pointing out in real terms how far a country is behind its neighbours can be enough to kick off the debate.

  2. Paraguay will soon become a state surrounded by freedom. Argentina to the south, Uruguay to the east. And in the last few weeks, the two Brazilian states it borders legalised gay marriage! Think it’s time Paraguay joined the 21st century!

    1. Do not forget Columbia as well a judge two years ago will allow gay marriage in July 2013 as well!

    You are forgetting that the judge can not be in favour or rule on gay marriage – because Paraguay has a constitutional amendment back in 1992 that bans same sex marriages!

      I don’t think anyone’s blaming the judge. They have to interpret the law as it stands. The problem here is the clause in the country’s constitution. The couple attempting to register their marriage were making sure everyone in Paraguay now knows that clause is there, and that it is out of step with the country’s neighbours.
