Freedom of Marriage for All
The problem with same-sex marriage not being permitted
If a will has not been left, you cannot inherit property! You may get kicked out of your own house that you lived in with your partner!
You are not eligible to receive the right to live in the same country
You cannot be with your partner when they are critically injured or ill
You and your child may become total strangers
In Japan, there is no law which entitles members of the same sex to marry each other.
This is something that infringes upon the rights of an individual, which the Constitution should protect, and is a violation of human rights and equality.
In response to this, ten same-sex couples living in Japan have taken action and filed a lawsuit to have the court determine that it is unconstitutional to deny the right to marry to same-sex couples.
