The afternoon of this Monday, September 10, the Labor Chamber of the Provincial Court of Justice decided to give the reason to the Civil Registry, which appealed the decision of a judge of first instance in favor of equal marriage.
The ruling indicates that the appeal of the Civil Registry is accepted and the judgment of first instance is revoked, so that the aspirations of a same-sex couple to marry are nullified.

The request for equal marriage was made following an advisory opinion of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, which maintains that the countries of the region must apply in their legislation the opening of all rights to the LGBTI population, including marriage.
The couple’s lawyers argue that there has been a regression of rights and analyze appeal to the Constitutional Court. (I)
