Thai Cabinet Approves Draft Law on Marriage Equality


Thailand’s Cabinet has approved a draft law on marriage equality and that will be brought to parliament during a session starting next month, Thailand’s Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin said yesterday. Srettha told reporters that the draft law is expected to be proposed to Parliament on December 12. Karom Polpornklang, a deputy government spokesperson, elaborated on the Thai leader’s comments, telling The Associated Press that the amendment to the Civil and Commercial Code will change the words “men and women” to “individuals” and the phrase “husband and wife” to “marriage partners.” This will enable same-sex couples to gain the same rights that heterosexual couples currently receive under Thai law.
