Is same sex marriage allowed in sikhism? If a Sikh man and another Sikh man decided to get married in a gurudawara, would they be able to get married and get a marriage certificate?

According to current order of Akaal Takht, two men cannot be married in Anand Karaj. As far as civil marriage is concerned it is their wish.

Ummm I agree with Kanwaljit Virji..don't think people from the same sex can get married in-front of Guru Granth Sahib Ji

Forbidden in Akal Takht law for Sikhs, and just not a Rehat Maryada, but Guru Granth Sahib, the Guru with no blind spots has no side to this, but I doubt that the Rehat will be have an amendment any time soon, so the answer is no, but Guru sahib will not punish you, your choice, the Guru or Rehat, or leaving Sikhi, or you change your sexual intrest, so you have 4 options, only one can be yours, if you have sexual desire of the same sex
