BREAKING: French National Assembly approves marriage equality and same-sex adoption

Feb 12, 2013

The French National Assembly just voted to approve both marriage equality and same-sex adoption with a vote of 329-229.

This is perhaps not surprising given the support for the bill’s most essential article earlier this month.

It now proceeds to the Senate, which is similarly controlled by the Socialists that took power last year.

A poll conducted last month shows that 63 percent of French voters support the freedom to marry. France and the United Kingdom are racing to be the 12th and 13th countries to legally recognize same-sex marriage.

The British House of Commons advanced similar legislation last week with a 400-175 vote.

What was all the doom and gloom about last month? I've already forgotten, and this is great!

Good point, R3. Based on the news, I had written this off.
