“Thailand’s Cabinet on Tuesday approved an amendment to its civil code to allow same-sex marriage, with an expectation for the draft to be submitted to Parliament next month. Karom Polpornklang, a deputy government spokesperson, said the amendment to the Civil and Commercial Code will change the words ‘men and women’ and ‘husband and wife’ to ‘individuals’ and ‘marriage partners’ for same-sex couples to be able to receive the same rights that heterosexual couples receive.”
