Court In Spain To Rule On Marriage-Equality Law

A day after we told you prospects for France’s marriage-for-all measure are looking a little grimmer comes the news that Spain’s Constitutional Court is expected to render a verdict this week on an appeal against the country’s existing gay-marriage law.

The right-wing Popular Party filed the appeal when marriage-equality legislation was passed by a Socialist Party-led Parliament in 2005—claiming the European nation’s constitution defined marriage between one man and one woman—but it’s taken seven years for a ruling.  It likely got fast-tracked now that the Popular Party is in power.

It would be a cruel irony if America extends the freedom to marry to more citizens just as Europe takes it away.
