Norway Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage!

"Members of Parliament in Norway today approved a bill that will allow same-sex couples to marry by 84 votes to 41.

The new law will make marriage gender neutral.

The Scandinavian country already allows gay and lesbian couples to enter into civil partnerships, but LGBT rights groups had long complained the law does not go far enough.

Norway, which is not a member of the EU, joins Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, South Africa and Canada in granting gay people full marriage rights."
