France: Final vote due on same-sex marriage

France is set to become the latest nation to legalize same-sex marriage Tuesday, despite vocal opposition from conservatives, when legislation goes before lawmakers in the lower house for a final vote.

The bill, which would also give same-sex couples the rights to adopt, was approved in the Senate earlier this month.

Since no amendments have been made during debate in the lower house, it will be the final vote on the legislation. The measure is expected to pass.

    If it's "expected to pass," bravissimo France!

    My posts may seem contradictory, but I do not think inside a box. I'm socially liberal and fiscally conservative: every person deserves an equal opportunity to be happy, including gays and even the rich.
