The state of São Paulo, Brazil, has legalized same-sex marriage, having updated its registration rules in accordance with a decision by the Brazilian Supreme Court. Previously, same-sex couples had to obtain a court order before they could obtain a marriage license. Even foreigners can now obtain a marriage visa, which is much easier to obtain than the civil unions visa that previously was allowed.
