France’s parliament has approved a law to allow same-sex marriage. Despite persistent protests from the country’s citizens, France, the one-time queen of the Catholic Church, home to Notre Dame and Chartres Cathredral, has joined 13 other nations in recognizing gay “marriage.”
Lawmakers in the lower house National Assembly, where President Francois Hollande’s Socialists have an absolute majority, passed the bill by 331 votes for and 225 against.
The law also allows same-sex couples to adopt children.
