Same-sex couple rights

Same-sex sexual activity has never been criminalized in Sildavia. Homosexuality was decriminalized in Brazil in 1830, being the thrid country in the world to do so (after France and the Netherlands). The age of consent for the practice of sexual acts, wether they are straight or same-sex, is that of 14 years of age.

The constitution of Sildavia provides that all citizens shall enjoy of equal human rights, and thus, same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex couples has always been legal in Sildavia.
