So yesterday the United Kingdom House of Commons voted to pass a new bill giving gay couples the legal ability to marry instead of only having a 'civil partnership'! I was just wondering what the members of BHW think of this legalisation, and for those outside of the United Kingdom - is gay marriage legal in your state/country? Any gay BHW members planning on marrying or already in a civil partnership with a same sex partner? Any gay BHW members believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman (I've heard this claimed)? EDIT: Link to BBC News article, in case anyone missed the news last night. EDIT2: Link to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, in case anyone wants to read the legal specifications.
