Walking Down the Aisle in Slovenia, Country Marries First Gay Couple

The first same-sex marriage has taken place in the Central European country of Slovenia after parliament voted to allow it. Same-sex couples will receive nearly identical rights of opposite-married couples, except they will not be allowed to jointly adopt children.  

“We are very happy and proud that we will perform the first same-sex wedding,” Ksenija Klampfer, head of the department in charge of weddings in Maribor, said as it got ready to host the first lesbian weeding. “We believe that such marriages are an important step towards formation of an inclusive society where people have equal rights.”

“This is a big step forward,” Lana Gobec of LGBT rights group Legebitra said. “But we will continue to strive for complete equality of heterosexual and same-sex couples.” [Pol]
