The French National Assembly approved a bill to legalize same-sex marriage. The vote, 249-97, redefined the marriage code in France as an agreement between two people. A majority of French people approve of the vote, with a recent survey showing that around 55–60% approve of same-sex marriage. Many feel that because the bill was approved by such a large majority that the bill will pass as a whole. Until then, MPs will debate the hundreds of amendments that the center-right added to the legislation, according to BBC.
