For the senat is 2 april…..18 march was date given by media but never confirmed by the senat!
Great news !!!! first marriage maybe for july…..
The measure is good for symbolism but is unlikely to change the decline if marriage in France.
In France 2010, there were 205,558 PACS or civil partnerships compared to 251,654 marriages. Only 9,000 of the 205,558 PACS were same sex relationships.
Soon PACS will overtake marriages, PACS being seen as more modern and better reflecting today’s relationships.
Vive la France!
Well done, France. Significant that this happened today, the first day the equal marriage bill is being scrutinised in committee in the UK. The opposition won’t be too happy hearing the news from across the channel.
The world is changing. Well done France.
does mot France have boring old homophobic m.p.s like us from grampa 72
France has plenty of homophobic MPs, who have spouted the same old rubbish against the change that the British homophobic MPS have. And just like in the House of Commons it appears their same old rubbish against the change isn’t convincing anyone.
Great isn’t it? :-)
Bloody Frenchies. Looks like they’re going to pip us to the post on this one. Darn it! Just one word to say to that – WATERLOO!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it
again: NO MORE BLOODY ABBA!!
Frigide Barjot and her posse of Catholics will be protesting for the 3rd time against this on March 24th. That lady really needs to pipe the fuck down lol!
It’s amazing how France is getting equal marriage and adoption, England is getting equal marriage, United States supreme court has it and will decide on equal marriage and DOMA. Mexico will look to get equal marriage , Colombia is deciding on Equal marriage. If this does not give you a boner i don’t what will. Maybe Sex
Well done France!
The SSM Bill now heads off to the French Senate – and hopefully pass.
What party controls the French Senate, because I hope the SSM Bill passes there as well!
