Equal Marriage now law in England and Wales
It's not perfect but it is done. Today Her Majesty the Queen signed the Equal Marriage bill and it became a law in England and Wales.
I'm proud to have been a minuscule part of the Out4Marriage campaign, and stunned that it is over because it has succeeded.
if any same-gender Jewish couples are looking for a rabbi for their wedding, I'd love to officiate. Just saying!

links to the major papers not yet up - will add later ... they are taking their time!
So far, The Times has a front-page photo and link to the winner of the Apprentice TV show, though, as well as telling us that the Queen is impatient for the royal baby to arrive. The Guardian has a couple of pieces about lethal school dinners in India. Not front-page news? Hmmmmm
