Thailand Takes Historic Step: House Approves Same-Sex Marriage Bill

🏳️‍🌈Thailand Takes Historic Step: House Approves Same-Sex Marriage Bill🏳️‍🌈

💞Thailand's House of Representatives has passed a law legalizing same-sex marriage, which now requires Senate and royal assent. If passed, Thailand will become the first Southeast Asian country to accept same-sex marriage. It would also make the country the third in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, following Taiwan in 2019 and Nepal in 2023.

🎯Thailand's bill defines marriage as a partnership between two people, rather than a woman and a man. It will also grant L.G.B.T.Q. couples similar rights to different tax breaks, the capacity to inherit property, and the authority to provide medical treatment consent for incapable partners. The document will also include adoption rights. Thai legislation now allows only heterosexuals.
