With Valentine’s Day on the horizon and arriving in just a few
days, I thought I would share global progress in the area of Love
for All Couples.
There are still a lot of areas in the world, including some states
here in the United States, which I think need to progress and
accept persons who are seeking same sex relationships to be
legally validated. The wish for these committed partners is to
enter into matrimony.
Unfortunately, when we hear the words ‘equality for all,’
the meaning behind the words is not always clearly
understood nor allowable in certain aspects. We still
don’t extend the same rights to everyone.
Here are some landmark decisions for the world in this
area of legality of same sex relationships and marriages.
Chile: Lawmakers introduced a marriage equality bill on
December 10, 2014. It has not passed yet, as far as I know
of the bill’s progress.
Finland: Marriage equality will come on March 1, 2017.
Wait a few years, this is what is being given as a choice.
Parliament approved a measure on December 12, 2014
but needed changes in other laws which will delay the
implementation for this law.
Ireland: Voters nationwide will take up the question of
marriage equality in a May, 2015 referendum. Prime
Minister Enda Kenny announced December 16, 2014.
Polls show 70 % of voters approve of this decision.
Scotland: Douglas Pretsell and Peter Gloster were the
first couple to wed after Scotland expanded marriage
rights on December 16, 2014. They married just after
midnight at the British consulate in Melbourne, Australia.
Slovakia: Voters were going to decide the issue of marriage
equality in a national referendum by February 7, 2015.
Help all to receive their hearts’ desire in Life.
Wishing everyone a
Happy Early Valentine’s Day.
Please share freely where you stand on this issue, I will
respect your personal choice. Also, if you live in a place
in the world where you wish the laws would change to
include same sex marriages, fill us in. If there is any new
progress being shown in your country, please let us know
what strides are being made in laws and acceptance, too.

his male ex-boyfriend who broke his heart, leading Sam to
create his lovely song, “Stay With Me.” Sam took home four
