Today, May 26, 2015, the Parliament of Greenland unanimously approved the freedom to marry for same-sex couples. The vote marks a big step forward for marriage for same-sex couples and shows that support and momentum are building around the world.
Greenland is an autonomous region in the Kingdom of Denmark, which has embraced the freedom to marry since June 2012.
Greenland is the latest to pass marriage legislation internationally. Just last week, the nation of Ireland voted overwhelmingly in favor of marriage for same-sex couples, becoming the first country to do so.
In total, same-sex couples can share in the freedom to marry in 21 countries on five continents.
Nineteen countries have approved the freedom to marry for same-sex couples nationwide (Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, Britain, Luxembourg, Finland and Ireland), while two others have regional or court-directed provisions enabling same-sex couples to share in the freedom to marry (Mexico and the United States).
In Slovenia, Parliament approved a marriage bill in March 2015 but is not final.

21 countries down, 175 to go
Could Ireland’s vote for same-sex marriage spark a global trend?
In the four days since Ireland voted to legalize same-sex marriage, another country has already been added to the growing list of nations where couples of any gender can walk down the aisle.
Greenland’s parliament voted unanimously to adopt Danish laws allowing equal unions on Tuesday, becoming the 21st country in the world where gay people can get married.
That move was in the making long before Ireland’s referendum but the country’s historic vote on Saturday has renewed the push for equality around the world.
It reignited debate in Australia, Italy, Northern Ireland and other nations that do not yet recognize same-sex marriage.
