Cuba looks to become the latest country in Latin America to approve same-sex marriage, after the National Assembly, on Aug. 5, unanimously approved a new constitution that defines marriage as "the consensual union of two people, regardless of gender," The Guardian reported.
The new constitution, known as the Magna Carta, will be put to a referendum later this year.
The document will replace the current constitution's definition of marriage as the "voluntary union between a man and woman." The new constitution does not explicitly address the question of whether same0sex couples can adopt children; however, experts say this will now likely be possible.
