Because of our small town habits we made a wrong decision to have a lengthy conversation on the street in front of our apartment in Cuenca, at night.
We were having a relaxed conversation with our neighbor.
Since the consolidation of this separation in the first decades of the 20th century, only civil marriage or unions have been recognized by the state.
During the debate over the 2008 Ecuadorian new Constitution, LGBT organizations campaigned for the inclusion of same-sex unions in it.
Ecuador's leftist President, Rafael Correa, openly stated at the time that he wanted the document to allow same-sex unions.My husband and I recently stayed with Nora and Patrick at Bonanza.They are a warm and loving family with a delightful son, Nicholas.That bad decision left us an easy target to the two thieves that robbed us.We had been told that Cuenca is not all that safe at night (like most cities) but we had been there for a few years with no problems so we were feeling a little too comfortable.
