Vietnam May Legalize Gay Marriage

A country in which homosexuals are currently whipped is seriously considering allowing them to marry.


Vietnam's Communist government, which long decried homosexuality as a "social evil," could be the first governing body in Asia to allow same-sex couples to marry.

The country's Justice Ministry has proposed including same-sex couples in the country's overhaul of its marriage law in response to a growing number of same-sex couples, the Associated Press reported Sunday.
