Lawmaker wants Costa Rican constitution to say marriage ‘between man and woman’
A Costa Rican evangelical lawmaker is proposing a change to the Constitution so that the document states “marriage is a union between a man and a woman.”
Justo Orozco, of the Costa Rica Renovation Party, proposed the revision to Article 52 of the Constitution, adding that the text would also state that marriage would not be granted to other unions.
The current article states marriage is “the essential basis of a family and rests on the equal rights of spouses.” Already the bill has received support from 13 lawmakers in six different parties.
