Colombia’s Constitutional Court was scheduled to discuss the same-sex marriage lawsuits today, but according to BluRadio Colombia, the Court has once again delayed the topic until next week.

The 9 magistrates are being asked to decide if couples who have contracted solemn unions should have the unions recognized as a marriage and if previously registered marriages should be annulled.
The country’s Inspector General argues that marriage should not be extended to gay couples and that marriages that were conducted by civil court judges should be canceled.
Although the media is predicting a victory for gay couples, the Constitutional Court has delayed a final decision four times.
The new debate date is the 25th.
