Question by shakfoo1: What countries legally allow same-sex marriages/unions for non-citizens/residents?
My partner and I want to get married/have a civil union but we live where neither of these are permitted by law. We would like to travel to some place that allows same-sex marriages/unions even though neither of us are citizens or residents of that country. Any information on this would be welcome. Thanks!

    Now, it is with great pride that I announce that today, Portugal will be added to the list of nations that allow LGBT marriages. The Portuguese President will sign the bill into law today thus allowing us to marry there if we wish! Thank you Portugal! This move has not been an easy one to do, considering the large Catholic population, but at least the people of Portugal are willing to recognize equality. Thank you again, Portugal!
