UK same-sex marriage law moves one step closer

05/02/13 21:06 CET

Britain’s lower house of parliament has voted to back a law legalising same-sex marriage.

The legislation is still several stages away from becoming law.

Ahead of the vote, Cameron said allowing gay marriage was “an important step forward” for the country.
