Same Sex Marriages For Wales And Alaska?

The recognition of same-sex marriages is spreading, with Wales and Alaska being the latest places to consider the move.

Wales

The Archbishop of Wales announced that there would be a meeting of the church’s Governing Body to decide on what would happen in regards to same-sex marriage. There will be three options on which to give their views: allowing same-sex weddings, introducing blessing for gay relationships, or maintaining the status quo.

If they wish to move in favour of same-sex marriage, then new legislation would need to be approved by Parliament to amend the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act that was put into place last year, as it is illegal for both the Church in Wales and the Church of England to marry same-sex couples.

Alaska

The state of Alaska has also released a court document, in which they say that the definition of marriage, and whether it includes same-sex marriage, should be decided by the citizens and not the courts.

The move is a bold one, giving voters more power than they previously had, will show a huge support of “the democratic form of government”. More will be heard on this next month, when oral arguments of the case are to be received. Hopefully it will change for the better, meaning that gay and lesbians will be allowed to marry.

What will it mean?

Here at Escort-Wales, we’re overjoyed to hear this. You can’t help who you love, or how you feel. Just like with the escorting world, there are a lot of misunderstandings about gay marriage and what allowing it will do.

Recognising same-sex marriage will mean that people who have been unable to be themselves now have that right, that they can be who they are without worrying what others think. They will be free and able to live life as they desire to. I only hope that in time the Cardiff escorts are seen to be doing real work, just as gay people are no longer being denied.
