Same sex marriage in Colombia

  1. 1. SAME SEX MARRIAGE A couple of days I was at my house watching T.V, and I heard the news about the most controversial issue that Colombia is Facing today: Gay marriage, the Colombians argue that it violates their rights, it violates religious principals and morals is one of the most controversial issues facing our country today. Many argue that it violates religious principles and morals. Same sex known as gay marriage or equal marriage it is marriage between two persons of the same biological sex or gender. Colombian lawmakers, the Senate are debating to approve o disapprove a same sex marriage proposal, the LGBT community in Colombia argue that they don’t enjoy the same rights that heterosexuals do, under the constitution, if Colombia accepts, same sex couples would immediately have the right to affiliate their partner to their social security system and health coverage. The article 42 of the Colombian Constitution which states, “The family is the fundamental unit of society. It is constituted by natural or legal ties; by the free decision of a man and a woman to marry”, well, this provision did not allow same sex couples to marry, it is not allowed to them to enjoy the right to cohabit. The LGBT claims equal treatment and not t be discriminated. Will be Colombia the 15th country to legalize same sex marriage? France becomes the 14th country to legalize gay marriage, I believe Colombia its far away from accepting same sex marriage and I agree with that, first at all marriage is a conservative institution based on Christian religious values
  2. 2. and those values has normative and cultural, and I srongly believe that extending those rights to them does little or nothing to address the structure of the family laws and the values in society. To conclude, I am a powerful believer that the Colombian Constitution do not exclude them, the only thing is that they not ready to say yes to a same sex marriage, because Colombia as a secular state that decision goes against on what nature dictates, let’s do not forget that the concept of Family in Colombia is in effect, and family is considered a union between a man and a woman, but we have to give good treatment to same sex couples too.
