Gay Marriage Must Be Law in Costa Rica by 2020

Costa Rica’s Supreme Court has ruled marriage equality must be law by 2020. The court said that the nation’s ban on gay and lesbian marriage is unconstitutional and therefore it must change. The courts gave the country time to rewrite the current law and to also update documents to allow people of the same sex to marry.

The justice, Judge Fernando Castillo, held a press conference to announce the change in law—making it one of the first Central American countries to grant same-sex couples the right to marry.

Though activists are saying that 18 months is an unnecessarily long time and are appealing that time frame.
