All that it needs now is the Queen's signature.  (A Queen signing Equal Gender Marriage Rights, lol)

Which country do you think will be next? Australia? Scotland? Columbia?

Breaking: Britain Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill — Will Become Law

The British House of Commons just completed passage of a same-sex marriage bill, after the House of Lords completed their passage of the bill yesterday. The two bill have now been joined into one and the Queen will sign the bill into law at some point, likely later this week, in what is called being given “Royal Assent.”

Same-sex weddings will be available some time next summer, according to British law. The bill extends marriage to same-sex couples in England and Wales.

Queen's a cool gal. She'll sign it.

Took long enough, the UK government moves as slow as the US one.

No Scotland, or has it already passed there?

wait this wasn't approved already?

Scotland was way ahead on this issue, but seems they fell behind. 

Oh, now they are going to be teased for being 'backwards' and 'uncivilized.'

Oh, I'm sure Scotland will try to match it then.

They can write one of these articles:

- when the Government announces it
- after each reading in the Commons
- after it passes in the Commons
- after it passes in the Lords
- after the amended bill passes in the Commons (now)
- after Royal Assent
- after it actually comes into force

It passed in the Commons in May, this article is referring to the passage of the amended bill after it came back from the Lords. But this is a formality because, yes, it already passed a Commons vote earlier in much the same form.

Well, as a nation the USA is still behind.  It is only since the last SCOTUS ruling that the Federal Government started recognizing marriages that happened in the states where it is legal.

With the massive lawsuit going on all over the country, I doubt it will take more than 5ish years.  Espically as people realize that is has nothing to do with their Churches, but is a Civil Rights issue.

Not long now, but how embarassing if both Costa Rica and Columbia gain on civil rights issues over the USA.
