Nepal & same-sex marriage

Nepal’s Supreme Court ordered the Maoist-led government to enact laws that guarantee full rights to gays and lesbians, including marriage.

Nepal will join Canada, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and South Africa in recognizing same-sex marriage.

In the U.S., only Massachusetts and Connecticut allow same-sex marriage.
