Gay Marriage to Sweden?

“Sweden may allow homosexuals to wed in the Lutheran Church or civil ceremonies as of May if parliament adopts legislation presented to parliament Wednesday, the prime minister’s party said. ‘The main proposal in the motion is that … a person’s gender will no longer have any bearing on whether they can marry. The marriage law and other laws concerning spouses will be rendered gender neutral according to the proposal,’ a statement from Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt’s conservative Moderates said. The proposal has wide backing in parliament and is expected to be adopted, though a date has yet to be set for a vote.” [AFP]
