Peru Court Recognizes Legal Marriage of Lesbian Couple

A Peruvian court has ruled in favor of a lesbian couple who sued the National Registry of Identification and Civil Status for refusing to register their marriage, which took place in Miami. Susel Paredes and Gracia María Aljovín were married in a civil ceremony in Florida in August 2016 and tried to have that legal union entered into the civil registry in Peru. But local authorities refused, based on Article 234 of Peru’s Civil Code, which defines “Marriage” as a union voluntarily entered into by a male and a woman.
