    Well if Canada’s federal same sex marriage law and Supreme Court decision back in 2005 didn’t trickle down to the USA, I doubt if Argentina’s ruling will trickle up. In the USA gay marriage is seen not as a matter of law but a moral issue. As long as it’s a moral issue no jurisprudence decision anywhere – Canada, Spain, Holland, Argentina, Sweden, will have an influence.

    It wasn’t a “ruling.”

    Hello Bruno

    Like Canada, whose legislators were forced to change the law to allow same-sex marriage through a ruling handed down by Canada’s Supreme Court that declared only sanctioning opposite sex marriage was against the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Argentina also had a Court “ruling” that forced the government to pass gay marriage legislation.
