New Zealand legalises same-sex marriage

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=10878073

A bill to legalise same-sex marriage has passed into law after its third reading in Parliament tonight, after months of emotional debate, parliamentary submissions, and passionate protests from people on either side of the issue.
New Zealand has become the 13th country in the world to enshrine marriage equality in law.
The Marriage Amendment Bill will take effect in mid-August and comes 27 years after New Zealand decriminalised homosexuality.
Hooray for us.
