Japan Partnership[edit]

Japan has started partnership yet it was written on the side but now it's gone. It started in 5 areas already but I think no one likes Japan. I feel sad that someone has to delete the "Japan" part. I hope all of Japan section for LGBT won't be deleted then I will be very sad that Wiki has to do this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:39, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

I'm glad you posted here, I think it is worth discussion. The two questions that need to be answered are
  1. What level of legal recognition is needed for the "Civil unions and registered partnerships" section and
  2. What level of legal recognition do LGBT couples have in each of the 5 cities?Naraht (talk) 15:44, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Here are the sources: http://life.letibee.com/partnership-japan-20160226/ http://www.huffingtonpost.jp/2015/11/04/lgbt-couple-shibuya-setagaya_n_8475140.html

The partnership allows a person over 20 years old or older in 5 cities which are Setagaya ward, Shibuya ward, Takarazuka city, Iga city, Naha city. And the merits to have this certificate is so the couples can rent a room, get insurance together, get mobile phone plans together, the person can visit the partner at a hospital when he/ she is hospitalized for emergencies with no questions asked, and inheritance for things when one of the partner passes away. The only down side for this certificate is that it doesn't allow the partner to get visa to stay easily but it can be negotiated through the government depending on how the other partner can work in Japan or not. And foreigners can get this certificate as well. Not just Japanese only. If there is more source needed I will write it down but it feels so awkward that other countries doesn't need so much source yet for certain countries you need a lot of source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:32, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

I have added them to the template and have sources. The sources were located on the same-sex union legislation page. [1][2][3][4][5] TenorTwelve (talk) 05:52, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Convert to meta-template[edit]

This template really should be converted to make use of {{Sidebar with collapsible lists}}. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 15:59, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, could you briefly explain what it is, for the uninitiated? Jdcooper (talk) 21:25, 30 November 2016 (UTC)


I have a question. Can we add that certain embassies perform same-sex marriages? I know the UK does that.[6] Could this be included in some way? I was not thinking of putting down each country but acknowledging that certain embassies across the world perform marriages. For example, the UK marriages I think should be listed under the UK if edits like this were adopted. Anyone have thoughts? Are there any other countries that do this?

  • I've given it a go. Is that would you had in mind? Jdcooper (talk) 00:11, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Yep! TenorTwelve (talk) 05:24, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

And if anyone else has comments, feel free.

Bizarre idea. The embassies are government's institutions, not legal jurisdictions. Ron 1987 (talk) 12:34, 28 December 2016 (UTC)


It sounds like Peru will recognize same-sex marriages performed outside of Peru. This was from a ruling from a Constitutional Court. This may be appealed (so we should keep an eye on this) but it doesn't have to and I hear it has "immediate nationwide impact," a commentator said.
