A long battle for same sex couples’ rights that is finally leading to a historical moment in the life of this country.
In August, 2018, the Supreme Court of Costa Rica ruled that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex couples to get married, setting a time of 18 months for the legislature to make real changes and approve a law that would allow these couple to finally get married.
As Q Cosa Rica said int this article, the country’s Civil Registry will begin processing registrations on 26th May.
Luis Guillermo Chinchilla, senior civil officer of the Tribunal Supremo de Elecciones (TSE), to which the Civil Registry is attached, assured that the necessary changes have been made: “The Civil Registry has made significant efforts in adjusting all the computer systems in civil registry matters, with the purpose of managing these registrations in a timely and expeditious manner, always within the framework of suitable and effective registry security as usual by our institution.”
Bravo Costa Rica!
