Norway Legalises Gay Marriage

This week, Norway became the sixth country in the world (after Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, South Africa and Canada) to grant gay people full marriage rights. The new law, which passed by 84 votes to 41, will make marriage gender neutral.

The law also also extends parenting rights for gay and lesbian couples. The new law will amend the definition of civil marriage in Norway to make it gender neutral.
