In US sind gleichgeschlechtliche Ehen in Bundesgesetz anerkannt marriage into federal law
December 14, 2022 - Das Respect for Marriage Gesetz, signiert von US Präsident Joe Biden, zwingt die Bundesregierung alle Ehen – auch gleichgeschlechtliche und interkulturelle – anzuerkennen. Damit sind sie vor Aberkennung durch den konservativ-dominierten Supreme Court sicher.
Although Justice Clarence Thomas did not mention interrarcial marriages in his opinion when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade in 2022, he called into question the legality of other rights established by Supreme Court verdicts including same-sex marriages and the right to contraception, opening all of them to legal challenge.
There are just 32 countries where same sex marriage has been legalised, 22 through legislation and 10 through court decisions. In addition, an advisory decision by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in 2018 stated that all 20 Organisation of American States’ signatory countries are obliged to make same sex marriage legal. The European Court of Justice ruled that all EU countries must recognise same-sex marriage for the purposes of immigration, regardless of whether or not it is legal in those countries.
