According to the Huffington Post, Reuters reported that Costa Rica’s top court has ruled that a ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. The decision was seen as a win for gay rights activists and welcomed by the country’s new president. The Supreme Court gave lawmakers up to 18 months to legalize gay marriage, which has long been opposed by the Roman Catholic Church. President Carlos Alvarado, who came to power earlier this year on a pro-gay rights platform, has publicly advocated same-sex marriage and vowed to implement the ruling.
