The Estonian Parliament approved a bill that would allow two adults of any gender to marry. The initiative was supported by 55 deputies, 34 opposed. The law will come into force on January 1, 2024.
Thus, Estonia will become the first country in the post-Soviet space to allow same-sex marriages . Since 2016, same-sex couples in Estonia have been able to enter into a cohabitation agreement.
Let's remind, one month ago openly gay Edgar Rinkevich became the president of Latvia.
The issue of LGBT rights is also being actively discussed in Latvian society, but there are no forms of registration of same-sex unions in the country, and such marriages are officially prohibited by the country's Constitution.
