Recognition of same-sex marriages[edit]

  • On December 14, 2012, the Court of Piauí began granting same-sex couples marriage licenses through all notaries statewide, thus ending a long struggle for marriage equality in state. Now, couples do not need to have a judge's approval to get married. This change was published officially in the 'Diário do Justiça' of this state on December 17, 2012.[1]
