France’s Constitutional Court: Gay Marriage Ban Perfectly Acceptable

Earlier this month we wondered aloud, “Will France’s Highest Court Grant These 2 Lesbians Marital Rights?” Now we have our answer: no. A ban on same-sex marriage in the country does not violate the Constitution, the country’s Conseil Constitutionnel ruled in a decision that says it’s up to Parliament to create the laws. Which means Corinne Cestino and Sophie Hasslauer, who’ve been together for 15 years and have four children, can try to lobby lawmakers to grant them the right to have their union recognized. Fun!
