After months of controversy and back-and-forths, France’s lower house of parliament approved a bill to legalize same-sex marriage and grant gay-married couples the right to adopt children. The bill was approved by a large margin (329–229). Despite numerous and large anti-equality marches, a majority of the French population believes that gay people should be allowed to marry. The bill will now go to the Socialist controlled Senate, where it is also expected to pass. [AP]
