South Africa is a free country for all where gay and lesbian marriages are recognized by law. Same-sex marriage in South Africa has been legal since the Civil Union Act, 2006 came into force on 30 November 2006. Ever since the same sex marriages got legalized we have seen a rapid rise in these marriages. Many people were afraid of what the society will say after coming out, but nowadays everyone is free to live his/her own life the way he/she wants to.
Caster Semenya is one of the South African lesbians who still makes headlines presently. There are people who are questioning her gender, with some believing that this athlete is a man. Caster is a woman and she is married to beautiful Violet Raseboya. Just two years after welcoming their first child the couple is expecting their second child.
Getting married and having children is something many of us look forward to from the time we ourselves are children. We play with baby dolls and cuddle relatives’ babies, dreaming of the day we can have our own. But if you are in a same-sex female relationship, you may find yourself asking the question, “How can a same-sex female couple have a baby?”
Thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, lesbian couples can now not only adopt children but give birth to their own.
Most people don't know that lesbian couples who are civil partners at the time of conception can conceive a child through donor insemination - either at a licensed clinic or by private arrangement at home. They are both treated as their child's legal parents.
Because of the many legal intricacies and variations between states (and countries) when it comes to establishing parenthood for LGBT singles and couples, it’s advised that you consult with a lawyer who's familiar with local family and reproductive law as you consider your options.
