The French Senate has voted to legalize same-sex marriage in France, the landmark bill is now on track to become law by this summer!
The vote took place in the upper house of parliament, and was led by President Francois Hollande’s Socialists. Despite the surprising boisterous protests from conservative opponents and fervant religious leaders the bill passed.
Both houses of parliament will now at this point, take up a second reading of the bill to consider minor Senate changes to the bill that passed in February by the National Assembly.
The bill would allow gay marriage, and let same-sex couples adopt children. While campaigning, President Holland pledged to push the legislation through if he was elected.
When the bill becomes law, France will join Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark,Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, and Sweden.
