Brazil's top court rules for marriage equality

From the HuffPo:
Brazil's top appeals court has ruled that two women can legally be married....

It was in May that Brazil's Supreme Court ruled that gay civil unions could be recognized. But the top court stopped short of recognizing full marriages.

Since then, several couples have petitioned to have their civil unions recognized as full marriages. Some of those have been approved at lower courts, others blocked.

Tuesday's ruling by the Supreme Appeals Court overturned two lower court's ruling against the women. .
