    From what I know of Thailand this doesn't surprise me. Sadly, I don't get the impression that this is on the table anywhere else in the region.

    In May 2012, a gay couple in Ha Tien held a traditional, public wedding at their home but were stopped by local authorities. The event was reported widely on Vietnamese media and started a heated debate on the issue.[2]

    Two months later, the Vietnamese Justice minister, Ha Hung Cuong, announced that the government was considering legalising same-sex marriage, stating that "in order to protect individual freedoms, same-sex marriage should be allowed." The subject was expected to be debated at the National Assembly congress in spring 2013.[3][4] However, in February 2013, the Ministry of Justice requested that the National Assembly avoid action until 2014.[5] In June 2013, the Ministry of Justice submitted the bill that removes the ban on same-sex marriage from the Marriage and Family Law and provides some rights for cohabiting same-sex couples.[6] The National Assembly is due to debate it in October 2013
