UK Members of Parliament (MP’s) tonight overwhelming endorsed historic legislation that will give gay couples the equal right to marry.
Almost half a century after homosexuality was legalised in Britain the House of Commons voted by a majority of 400 to 175 to redefine marriage and make it available to all.
The Bill will now pass through the House of Lords and is expected to become law this year.
The UK already has ‘Civil Partnerships’ for same sex couples which are recognised in the Immigration Rules, as are long term relationships when sponsoring a partner.
