August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #98: Is a Canadian Gay Marriage Recognized in America?

Tip of the Week

Same sex marriages that have been performed in Canada are not automatically legal in any other country. Couples need to apply to their local government for legal recognition of their marriage. There are very few countries that will recognize a gay marriage performed in Canada .

That said, it is important for couples to add their marriage to the numbers fighting to legalize gay marriage in most countries. Couples who have had a Canadian gay marriage should contact their local gay rights groups to see how their marriage can count toward gay marriage rights in their country.
