||Foreign gays can marry in Spain
This article shared 2951 times since Thu Sep 1, 2005
Spain's Justice Ministry ruled Aug. 8 that foreign same-sex couples who live there can get married there.
'A marriage celebrated between a Spaniard and a foreigner, or between foreigners of the same sex resident in Spain, will be valid as a result of applying Spanish material law, even if the foreigner's national legislation does not permit or recognize the validity of such marriages,' the government declared.
The law is similar in two of the other three nations that allow same-sex marriage: the Netherlands and Belgium. In the fourth, Canada, even visitors can get married, buying a license and tying the knot the same day—except in Quebec, which has a brief waiting period.
Hundreds of U.S. same-sex couples have crossed the border to marry in Canada.
