France's Senate Approves Marriage Equality Bill in 179-157 Vote:


The French Senate today approved Section 1 of its marriage equality bill in a vote of 179 to 157. Section 1 removes the requirement for different genders as a condition of the right to marry.

The bill was adopted after more than 10 hours of discussion. The National Assembly has already passed it 329-229 and according to AFP will not need to see it again.

Looks as though marriage equality is going to happen in France!

There are mostly French news reports right now so if anybody would like to fill in the details of what happens next, please feel free in the comments.
