'Same-Sex' marriage set to be law in UK by end of week

There are now no obstacles to equal marriage in the UK - the final debate is about some amendments. It will be law by the end of the week and the first marriages can happen in 2014.

On a personal note, this means we can get our 'upgrade' to marriage in a year's time!

Most excellent, on both the political and your personal level! Now we just need to get Scotland onboard (though I understand a bill has already been introduced there)
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Sorry, you're right - I should have said 'England and Wales', not 'the UK'. I get confused about which laws apply to the whole of the UK and which only apply to England and Wales. Good to hear that Scotland is working on it too!

Then we can sit back and watch England fall apart in a morass of chaos, anarchy and godless immorality & hedonism as has happened in every country where gay marriage has been legalised.

Hey! I feel cheated. There's not nearly enough hedonism, anarchy, and godless immorality here in Canada!

Did our shipment get delayed or something? :mad:

Congrats in advance!  2014 isn't that far off now!

Honestly I was surprised by this headline.  For some reason I had the notion that SSM was already legal in the UK.  So, damn, now I have to say congrats again.  So, congrats!
Oh, is it time again to say "Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets?"?

Okay. Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets.

Nope - England and Wales have had civil partnerships for several years (not sure about Scotland), but not marriage.
