Homosexuality is legal in Aruba.
Adoption by same-sex couples is legal.
Legal recognition of same-sex unions Edit
As part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Aruba is obliged to recognize same-sex marriages registered in the Netherlands as valid. The Aruban government initially declared same-sex unions illegal, but was challenged by a lesbian couple who had legally married in the Netherlands and then moved to the island. The case went to the Hoge Raad der Nederlanden (Dutch Supreme Court), which ruled on 13 April 2007 that Aruba must recognize all marriages registered in the Netherlands.
