Geregistreerd partnerschap en homohuwelijk naar Arubaans parlement

Geregistreerd partnerschap en homohuwelijk naar Arubaans parlement | caribisch netwerk (Dutch article)

Amendments to the new civil code for registered partnership and gay marriage have been proposed to the Aruban parliament for a vote. MP Desiree De Sousa-Croes is optimistic that at least registered partnership can count on a broad base of support of members of parliament. It remains less clear if gay marriage will be accepted and passed through this voting round.

She hopes, if not passed this time, that the future Aruban politicians can be more successful at getting gay marriage legalized in Aruba.
