Homosexual marriage made easier in Brazil

Note: Please check: Same sex marriage allowed in São Paulo. 

The National Council of Justice (CNJ) approved on the last 14th of May a resolution that orders notary public offices to convert stable unions between homosexual couples to a formal marriage, should the couple wish to do so.

Most homosexual couples used to formalized their union through a stable union agreement. Now, instead of having to marry in order to transform the civil union into a regular marriage, they can just convert the stable union, which is easier and faster.

The same goes for the validation of gay marriages celebrated abroad.

There is a risk of the measure being questioned before the Supreme Court. But, personally, I do not believe it will happen.
