A regional court in Costa Rica ruled that a same-sex couple can receive a state-given welfare credit, making the ruling the first in Central America to treat a same-sex couple as a formal union. The ruling will not be extended to other couples, whose cases will be decided on an individual basis. Despite this small victory, activists are hopeful that the court case will be brought to a higher court, and make gay and lesbian unions the law of the land. [TheGuardian]
