    As is stands now there are three “countries” within the Kingdom – The Netherlands, Aruba, and the Netherlands Antilles and from what I gather, Aruba’s status is supposed to remain unchanged so the Arubans will decide on their own whether they want to recognize the marriages between Arubans or not. Parts of the Netherlands, I believe, will be annexed by the Netherlands and parts will be given a status not unlike that now provided by Aruba.

    I wouldn’t be too surprised if equality will be mandated within the annexed parts but we shouldn’t get our hopes up for those portions of the Kingdom that are not.

    Of course this is all subject to changes made at the negotiating table.

    My partner and I really like Aruba and had some years ago looked into getting married there, but to no avail. With any luck this will change and hopefully it will be marriages they offer and not the second class partnerships or unions.
