...the legislation guarantees equal legal rights and benefits for same-sex couples, akin to those enjoyed by heterosexual couples. These rights encompass government-endorsed medical treatment, tax deductions, approval rights for spouse’s medical treatment, asset management and inheritance, child adoption, and funeral organising rights for spouses.

 

No mention of sponsorship for immigrant spouses, unless that's implied by "akin to those enjoyed by heterosexual couples".

Does that mean when you're walking down Soi Buakhao in Pattaya instead of the Ladyboy's saying (I go with you) now they're gonna say (I marry you) ?

None of the esv laws going to help your country look at the usa after the ngos got in there and George soros 

Paid to get judges in several districts usa has been poisoned dont let thailand suffer the same fate . George soros got thailand in 1997. Thailand had to take a loan from the United nations and they imposed there laws on thailand . Look what happen last year legal abortion. You can commit murder now what happen to Buddhism in Thailand. All this crap is poison in my opinion . So what now you can get married now you can fight over assets and get taxed more 555 oh yea and casino is a bad idea as well.who is this guy digital currency bad idea . Who is this guy pro China. You know its not fun there . That's why they come here because it is no fun there .

Same sex marriage makes little sense, unless you separate sex from reproduction, and reduce marriage to a feel good lifestyle choice, implying other alternatives are equal to marriage and family.

It makes a great deal of sense to those that wish to have the legal formality of a marriage, which affords spouses the same legal, medical and financial benefits that have only been granted to male/female registered marriages.

A couple is a couple, regardless of their gender and they shouldn't be prevented from enjoying the same benefits, afforded by law, to other couples.

A very good point. 

If a same-sex couple has a legally registered marriage in their home country, and one of them is legally working in Thailand, will the spouse be allowed a Non Immigrant O (dependent) visa?

Also, if a same-sex couple marriage of a Thai national and a foreigner is registered here, will that foreigner be allowed a Non Immigrant O (spouse) visa?
