The Civil and Commercial Code states that "a marriage can take place only when the man and woman have completed their seventeenth year of age."

By limiting the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman, the Thai legal system has taken away the right of LGBT couples to be legally recognized, and has limited their right to found a family. 

In a new short documentary "Love Wins," Prachatai and 1448 For All tell the story of LGBT families and the road towards marriage equality.
