Aug 12, 2022
I know that more countries have done this, but it is still weird to me. Why not legalise same-sex marriage while you're at it? Is it mainly because of religious reasons then?

Estonia is very athiest, so definitely not for them. But maybe for Israel?

Level 69
Aug 12, 2022
Some would suggest that this is the more appropriate path to take. Marriage, by definition, is a religious ceremony. Estonians, and others, feel that the government doesn't have a concern in whatever a church allows (or doesn't), but providing equal rights and benefits is priority.

Marriage is not "by definition" a religious ceremony. The first marriages were recorded in the 24th century BC in Mesopotamia - long before any of the religions that exist today even started!

Not necessarily. Taiwan didn't pick a date to implement the law and might wait until 2019. Plenty of things might happen in the meantime, and it could even end up not being the first Asian country with gay marriage since Nepal, Vietnam, Thailand and Japan are considering passing the law.

Aug 25, 2017
I did a trekking in Nepal 2 years ago and our guide (who constantly held my hand while explaining something) 'confirmed' there are no gay people in his country... Even if they are - finally - thinking of passing that law, they still have a lot of work to do to create acceptance amongst their population.

The guide was an educated young man btw... sad

The government should not be involved in marriage. The power to make gay marriage legal is the same as the power to make interracial marriage illegal. Our freedom shouldn't be contingent on the whims of politicians.
+66
Level 72
Feb 9, 2018
But... the government saying it's legal IS the government getting out of it. They're saying that the government can't stop two people from getting married just because of their gender. And that's exactly WHY things like this NEED to be enshrined in law, so that politicians CAN'T just change things on a whim.
+27
Level 84
Sep 23, 2018
As long as marriage is a recognized civil institution with legal implications this argument is invalid. But moreover, if you believe that people have a right to get married at all then barring certain kinds of people from getting married is discriminatory and unconstitutional.

Jan 14, 2020
Unfortunately, there is NO right to marriage. Government has taken that right away. I had to get a marriage license (permission) to get married to my wife. Marriage licenses started post Civil War in the US. If ANY higher authority has to be involved prior to the performance of any action, that is not a right. That is a privilege. The real issue, Constitutionally, is the ninth and tenth amendment. The Federal Government has no legal authority to force States into recognizing gay marriage. The other issue is these quizzes are supposed to be fun and not politically charged and the fact that this quiz is on here to open itself up for this kind of debate is stupid. Is there a "Countries that allow slavery" quiz? I guess I will create it.

So, I know this may be a stretch but, what happens once a big majority of countries have legalized it, the quiz will have lost its point and be a "name a lot of countries" quiz.

Level 74
Jan 2, 2018
There will be a point at which the 'countries that do not permit same-sex marriage' will make more sense. That's still some time in the future - very many countries (numerically) will persist in this category for decades to come. But, it is great to have to take this quiz each year again as the list grows. I'm not in the same-sex relationship group, but I am really happy that this topic is becoming routine in so many places around the world. Only 20 years ago, it was still a far-off aspiration in every country in the world. In 20 years from now, we will wonder what people were thinking back in the 'old days'.
+38
Level 68
Jan 3, 2018
It'll be weird in 30 years when kids will look back on this and think "How can the government not allow two people of the same sex from getting married?", and then I'll feel old for remembering when it was a debate and all.

I find it interesting to see how fast such a law can spread nowadays. Women vote and abolition of death penalty took way more time to be adopted by as much countries and some still don't have it.

Level 50
Jan 13, 2020
Yeah, I was thinking it's depressing there are only 27 on the list, but 20 years ago there were 0, so progress is being made, though it's long overdue.
+19
Level 67
Jan 15, 2020
I think the rapid progress has a lot to do with the fact the homosexuality is not correlated to race, class, income, or geography. Most people who oppose progress for marginalized groups have a stigmatized view of those groups because they don't interact with them. The white suburban people I know are "tough on crime" because they don't know any poor people and don't appreciate the link between poverty and crime. But a lot of them have softened their views on homosexuality since they found out they have a gay nephew, neighbor, coworker, and or whatever, and realized through direct interaction that, hey, he's just like everybody else and he deserves to be happy. And now that homosexuals are more visible and accepted, people who are gay are more willing to come out and be known, which increases the community's visibility exponentially and further normalizes it. It's a great ripple effect.
+4
Level 70
Mar 7, 2021
Unfortunately, it still may take a while for a lot of developing countries to come around to this, where conservative attitudes toward LGBT rights still prevail. I'm pretty hopeful for the future though. My millenial/Gen Z cousins in Bangladesh seem to support it, or at least be willing to talk about it. Plus, there's widespread legal recognition and growing acceptance of transgender people throughout South Asia. When future generations comes to power, I think there's a serious chance that things will change.

So....there are 196 recognized countries in the world (thanks JetPunk), and only 23 have recognized same sex marriage.

So it's safe to say that the majority of the world doesn't allow same sex marriage. Now that's not to say anything good or bad. Remember, we are only talking about numbers here.

So in order for same sex marriage to be even close to the norm, 77 more countries need to recognize this. (That means the majority 99 countries yes and 97 countries no).

The list I would like to see.......Of the 173 current countries that don't allow same sex marriage, which one's are more likely to change their position on the issue? That would be jetpunk GOLD.

Level 45
May 3, 2018
I get your point, but I think if we want to talk numbers it would be more correct to talk about it in terms of number of countries and those countries' percentage of world population. There's some sizably populated countries on this list. Of course, if we want to talk about that, we have to remember that it could be legalized in 194 countries and still only cover about 2/3 of the world's population if you exclude China and India. And I don't think it's about to happen there anytime soon.
+5
Level 70
Mar 7, 2021
Can't say about China, but India recently legalized homosexuality, which I think is a big deal. And as I mentioned in a comment above, young people in conservative Bangladesh also seem open to it.

I don't think a majority will happen anytime soon, but, as a Gen Z, I could forsee it happening within my lifetime.

Level 57
Aug 12, 2022
It's only "not acceptable" depending upon which parts of the world you're talking about. Should we Westerners (and others) force our morality on the rest of the world? People like to complain today about another time the Western powers did just that, and they're now trying to "de-colonize" everything! So, we should "de-colonize" cultures... except for the parts of those cultures that we now find morally reprehensible given today's Western morality. Hmmm... wee bit of a quandry there innit? Just to be clear, I'm not anti-same-sex-union here. Just playing devil's advocate and presenting some (hopefully) food for thought.
+4
Level 66
Aug 14, 2022
Trying to portray Human rights as "Western rights" is not "food-for-thought", it's a well-known worn-out tactic used by oppressive regimes who cannot possibly find a rational reason for oppressing people. I'd be very surprised if you weren't, in fact, very much opposed to gay rights.

It's an outdated institution born out of the desire to turn women into property and also to make sex, which should be a basic human right, something expensive and exclusive so that men with power and privilege could monopolize all of the best options for it.
+5
Level 74
Feb 24, 2022
That's an interesting theory. Do you really think so? Would it not be even more so without marriage? In some respects doesn't marriage protect the individual? I'm married, but I certainly don't believe I own my wife.

I do agree that men with power will always monopolise most things, including sex, if they want it.

+1
Level 69
Jun 25, 2022
I mean, kal definitely is correct about the origins of the marriage institution in the western world (in the world as a whole to *some* degree, but it gets complicated).

You could certainly make an argument that it has changed enough over time that the statements no longer hold, but "I'm married and" is not that argument.

It's hard for me personally to figure out in what respects marriage protects the individual except for giving access to various things which should clearly not be hidden behind marriage in the first place.

+2
Level 67
Jun 25, 2022
While I don’t disagree that marriage began as a way to control women and sometimes still is used that way, I do not believe that marriage necessarily needs to be abolished. Marriage is optional, and if you don’t want to get married, typically no one is forcing you to. Marriage creates accountability and stability, which provides a good foundation for children to be raised. As long as there is respect on both sides of the relationship, I do not believe there is anything wrong with getting married.

If you want to delve further into this topic, I suggest reading Aldous Huxley’s book, Brave New World, which provides a fascinating perspective on why marriage or at the very least monogamy is important. While the book is definitely not PC as it was written in the 1931, the underlying message still rings true and I would definitely suggest reading it.

+2
Level 73
Jan 14, 2020
Only religious institutions, then? They don't have any reason to hold the exclusivity on marriage, it just so happens that they did for a long time. If that's not your argument, then you fail to understand what marriage really means. Civil marriage is a legal act, and therefore directly tied to the government that both creates and upholds the laws.

My country is on this list, and I respect the opinions of those who support it. This is a polite reminder that many of us still believe marriage is a male-female union that governments should not try to redefine. We love our neighbours whatever their sexual proclivities but that doesn't mean we agree with this historically new understanding of what marriage is.

If it was renamed ‘Garriage’ instead of ‘marriage’ would it bother you? Since marriage is a legal union and not a religious one, why do you think the government should not be able to change it? It’s not like churches are forced to perform religious ceremonies…

Or do you just think same-sex couples, whilst you love them, shouldn’t be able to have next of kin or inheritance or a legal say over their partners medical decisions if they’re incapacitated, or the ability to adopt or pay taxes together etc? Y’know, the legal things obtained by a civil marriage.

And if you say ‘well a civil partnership offers that’ then it’s literally just the use of the name ‘marriage’ that’s bothering you. At which point surely you’d not care if it was renamed ‘garriage’.

And if that’s the case it’s kinda just being a pedant really isn’t it? That a word is bothering you.

Evangelical (probably homophobic) Christians living in the 20th Century, heavily influenced by the French Romantics of the 18th Century, did not invent marriage and don't have a monopoly on defining it. The institution, in various forms, has been around way longer than your historically recent understanding of what it should mean. and the sources that you likely turn to to try and lend legitimacy to your definitions in all likelihood were written by people who would find your concept of marriage completely baffling and strange.

I just want to point out that the Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabic, is openly lesbian. I don't know much about how people in Serbia view homosexuality traditionally, but if their Prime Minister is LGBT, it's likely that the country is quickly liberalizing its attitude toward LGBT rights.
