Aruba, Puerto Rico: Recognizing Gay Marriage

Aruba is the first Caribbean territory to officially acknowledge gay marriage, reports gay news blog. The move follows a three-year legal battle with Dutch authorities that began when a lesbian couple tried to register their marriage on the island. And Vivir Latino says that Puerto Rico may be considering the same move: “Wouldn't it be a hugely powerful statement if Puerto Rico, who is subject to US laws, were to pass the measure and prove once and again how it truely is its own nation with a clear concept of the diversity that is the Puerto Rican people?”
