    Hope to be in the first batch of gay marriage, but it's tricky to organize.

    You still have the senate (left owned too), with the text eventually going back and forth, then likely constitutional challenge by the right wing, then application decrees.

    All in all I should be able to legally marry my partner between early May and late June.

    I hope we will have time to organize everything on short notice.

    I want our families, friends, and a party !

    Apparently, one of the member of the parliament who had militated strongly against the law, voted by mistake for it. He mixed up the buttons. haha

    Does this mean it's now socially acceptable to French-kiss your boyfriend in public?
