"The judges affirmed by a majority that marriage between people of the same sex does not violate constitutional order," presiding Judge Maria Victoria told the court.
Many officials had refused to register such marriages since congress failed to pass legislation enshrining equal marriage rights in law , prompting protests from gay rights campaigners.
Six of the court's nine judges approved the ruling that "all people are free to choose independently to start a family in keeping with their sexual orientation... receiving equal treatment under the constitution and the law."
There are many countries who have legalized the marriage and given the rights to people of doing what they feel is right.
