Vote of conscience in favor of ‘Same Sex Marriage’ : Germany celebrates.



A free vote on Same sex marriage has succeeded with a majority of votes in its favor. German lawmakers voted to legalize the same sex marriage on Friday after the German Chancellor Angela Merkel dropped her stand opposing the free vote for the same.  The Germans celebrate as LGBT community has been fighting for their right ever since forever. The bill allows the homosexual couple to lead the same life as heterosexual couples. It is still yet to be passed by the Bundersat – Germany’s upper house.  But its looks on the same page as it had previously approved the legalizing the same sex marriage. Thou Angela Merkel voted against it, she has promised to proceed in favor of vote of conscience.

Once legalized, Germany would be the 23rd country to join the club of nations who have legalized same sex marriage.  ILGA – Europe executive director Evelyne Paradis said “ After years of waiting and hoping, rainbow families in Germany will now receive equal recognition under the law – this is a historic milestone that can inspire even more change for LGBTI people,”.
