Mapping the recognition of same-sex unions in Europe.
Navy = same-sex marriage legal; dark blue = other type of domestic partnership; light blue = unregistered cohabitation; grey = unrecognized; red = constitution limits marriage to opposite-sex couples.
Also see maps of other LGBT rights in Europe, marriage equality around the world, LGBT rights in the American workplace, and rules about sexual orientation and military service.
At the end of the day, it’s a pretty simple proposition. 

The UK will be dark blue soon!

topherchris: So, this argument. “Kids do best with a mom and dad!”
My dad abandoned me as a kid and then I had a shitty stepdad. That really sucks, but it happens, and it has nothing to do with gay people getting married.
Kids do best with love and support. Adults do best when they’re not being assholes.

I fucking hate how tumblr is so America based like are any of you even aware this just happened



CHURCH OF ENGLAND
YOU WERE INVENTED ESPECIALLY FOR DIVORCE
ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO PLAY THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE CARD



That comment.



England and Wales are two of few western nations that are de facto Christian theocracies. The state-enforced status of the archaic and explicitly discriminatory national churches is absurd and outrageous. Religious denominations have the right to religious freedom; but should absolutely be obliged to perform certain social functions if they wish to assert themselves as official churches. They should otherwise obviously be disestablished and separated from the legislature completely.

Gay marriage in Spain affirmed by top court, justices reject appeal to knock down 2005 law
By Associated Press, Updated: Tuesday, November 6, 1:28 PM
MADRID — Spain’s Constitutional Court upheld the legality of the country’s gay marriage law on Tuesday, rejecting an appeal contending that marriage in the Spanish constitution means only the union of a man and woman.
The county’s top court voted 8-3 to dismiss the appeal of the conservative Popular Party filed shortly after Spain became the world’s third country to approve gay marriage.
Spain’s Parliament passed the gay marriage law in 2005 when it was Socialist-controlled, with Popular Party deputies opposed. The Popular Party took power late last year after the Socialists were ousted over their handling of the economy.
The gay marriage law angered the predominant Roman Catholic Church but opinion surveys showed most Spaniards backed it. Belgium and the Netherlands approved gay marriage laws before Spain.
More than 22,000 gay marriages have taken place in Spain.
