The government doesn’t give a toss, so long as they‘re productive workers. So while it’s technically not recognized, no marriage is. It’s simply up to a person‘s employer.

Marriages in Sarzonia are strictly a religious construct. They carry with them no legal rights or responsibilities. However, if someone chooses a religious wedding, they're allowed.

Civil unions carry with them the legal rights and responsibilities that are traditionally (in other countries) granted to marriages. Two consenting adults* are permitted to marry whomever they choose as long as they're of legal age and/or standing to enter into a civil union.

*Anyone who is legally emancipated in Sarzonia is considered an adult for the purposes of the legislation. The age of majority in Sarzonia is 18 otherwise.

Same-sex couples cannot marry in Aaaaaa but can arrange for a civil union (known as an "extranuptialem" in Aaaaaa). Aaaaaa does however, recognize foreign same-sex marriages (in theory at least, meaning you could, for example, purchase a marriage cake legally within Aaaaaa if you are being married outside the country).

On the off chance you actually want to marry in Altratla (which means sharing your wealth with your spouse REEEEE), if you are homosexual, you'll have to take your private yacht and marry in a country with more up-to-date same-sex marriage laws, because we don't have any.
Welcome to Monaco-on-Steroids, more commonly known as Altratla. A small but obscenely rich, skyscraper-ridden, Scientology-fuelled island nation and city-state known simply for it's ridiculous, borderline-comical wealth. If a billionare (or, considering the expanse of the multiverse, trillionares or more) lives in your nation, chances are they probably own a holiday retreat in Altratla.

In the Dominion, homosexuality is legal and same-sex marriage are performed. Priests of the faith can refuse to perform such a marriage, though. "Excessive" public displays of homosexuality are illegal and considered a misdemeanor crime. The criteria for "excessive" is left solely to the discretion of the magistrate. As with all other forms of dissent, protests made in favor of equal rights and fair treatment are illegal, considered a felony crime, and will be swiftly and ruthlessly suppressed. The organizers of said protests are sometimes sentenced with the death penalty for disrupting the peace and defying the sacred decrees of the Empress.
You'd better believe I'm a bitter Bernie Sanders supporter. The Dems fucked up and fucked up hard. Hopefully they'll learn that neoliberalism and maintaining the status quo isn't the way to win this election or any other one. I doubt they will, though.

Homosexual individuals who upload themselves into the K-Sphere are recommended to join mind communities consisting of those who would accept them, unless they would prefer some degree of difficulty in life (say, they feel that struggling against cultural adversity is more important to them than being accepted right away). The de facto norm is for minds to participate in accepting communities and, if they feel marriage is a useful marker of attachment to another, to marry those who consent to it.

"Same-sex marriage performed" seems to be the closest option here, albeit with the caveat that marriage in general is relative to one's community and carries no fixed universal meaning or legal power outside of the minds involved.
"Stay here in prisonspace and you choose entirely needless suffering, all because you favor a world whose substrate happens to be atoms. Join the K-Sphere and you choose an endless utopia, a freedom to fulfill any desires or preferences you could develop, all in a world whose only necessary difference is a substrate of information."

Homosexual relationships in Rwizikuru are illegal, and depending on the severity of the offense may be punishable to life in prison without parole. Same-sex marriages are not allowed, and Rwizikuru does not recognize same-sex relationships of any kind, even if performed outside its borders.

In Wolflandil it is not uncommon to see homosexual relationships, and in fact they tend to be the leading adopters of children.

Homosexuality in Shalotte has never been considered to be a taboo or controversial subject, to the extent that marriages conducted by the Draéryn (which are nearly all of them) make no distinction between the two, and the Gaeltyn recognises no difference between them nor collects statistics about them.

Far from being ostracised, homosexual Shalottes have historically been free to go about their affairs as easily and casually as heterosexuals. Homosexual couples in Shalotte are historically more likely to adopt adopt orphaned children - a phenomenon that was (and sometimes still is) fairly common in the difficult living conditions of the islands - in lieu of having their own biological children, which to community-minded Shalottes is considered honourable.

The only 'issue' homosexual couples face if they decide to marry is when it comes to clan names and lineage - in Shalotte, clan lineage is traditionally determined matrilineally, and is somewhat more formal than the 'surname' concept in use elsewhere. For female couples, the pair simply makes a decision as to which clan name they decide to adopt together, but for male couples a 'decision' about which clan name they adopt must be sought from and arranged by their respective clans' matriarchs, on top of the usual permission to marry. Generally speaking, though, the matriarchs of each clan unanimously rule in favour of the wishes of the couple in question, and it is considered to be an 'administrative' problem - a simple bureaucratic quirk - rather than an existential or moral problem.

In Shalotte myth, when Duená, Goddess of Love and Hate, imbued humans with emotion to relieve them of their mundanity, the power of love took many forms, all of them as valid as the others. Romantic love, as expressed between couples, is considered to be a divine gift, one not thought to be limited to gender.

Same sex marriage is legal in The Land of Whiskey and has been since 2015.
Although, churches/priests/ministers have the right to choose not to marry a homosexual couple because of religious values and as The Land of Whiskey has a traditional culture with a large population of orthodox religious people, it is difficult for a same-sex couple to find a jurisdiction that will marry them. The Land of Whiskey government is aware of this but currently has no plan to interfere with the freedom of the church.
