- There are different regimes of marriage, but we can find a tendency, at least in western countries, to recognize the marriage between same-sex couples.This recognition of same-sex marriage is also the best way to avoid the requirement of divorce when one member of a previous heterosexual marriage chang his/her sex. Nevertheless some countris, which don't allos same-sex marriage, have accepted the maintenance of the marriage (Germany, Austria) in these cases, because otherwise sill be affected human dignity. The affection to human dignity and personal freedom will be deeper affected in thos countries that have neither any kind of civil unions for same-sex people.
