The UK Marriage Bill completed its third, and final, reading in the House of Lords today marking the final steps in the UK becoming the 16th country to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. The bill is now set to return to the House of Commons where MPs are allowed to make changes to the bill. If they do, the bill is then sent back to the House of Lords, a back-and-forth process that could stall the bill from becoming an Act of Parliament before the scheduled summer recess. The Commons will begin reviewing the bill tomorrow. [PinkNews]
