Gay Marriage Is Up In Spain.


New figures from the Spanish Government reveal that more than 18,000 same-sex couples got married in Spain between 2005 and 2010.

These newly announced numbers show show 18,634 same-sex marriages have been registered.    However, the State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals (FELGBT) feels  not all the marriages have been recorded, with the real actual number somewhere closer to 23,000.


In 2010, 2.1 per cent of marriages were between people of the same sex, according to the official statistics.  2,216 male marriages and 1,367 between women, a slight increase on those of previous years.

Although the jump in numbers isn’t necessarily a good sign  FELGBT claim the regular rhetoric from  Partido Popular (People’s Party) about repealing the same-sex marriage law is to blame,   "because of fear of not being able to exercise their right to matrimony if the PP wins the elections." is making more people get married now,  whilst they can.
