Sorry, Ladies: The Portuguese Ain’t Getting The Gay Marriage

Portugal’s law banning same-sex marriage is not unconstitutional, the nation’s Constitutional Court ruled. The 3-2 decision knocks down a case involving Teresa Pires and Helena Paixao, who’s been together for six years and were denied a marriage license. Still on Portugal’s constitutional books: prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. Evidently, banning gay marriage and discrimination are able to exist as one.
