Three cheers for Denmark!

And all the other countries where this applies as well!

Fun fact: Denmark was the first country to legalise gay marriage. (Extra: Two old men were the first ones to get married under this new law)

Denmark was the first country in the world to recognize same-sex unions, after passing a bill legalizing "registered partnerships" (but not "marriages" as such). The first country in the world where same-sex couples could actually "marry" is the Netherlands. (Same-sex marriage bill). For some people this might just be a question of semantics, however for others it is an important distinction. -- Nevertheless, well done Denmark! --

And still, some people think gay unions will provoke the end of our societies... and well, they might be right... : "ending" discriminations laws by making new ones which respect basic human rights, to build a better opened society should be welcomed... y_y

But did you know that Ireland was the first country to legalise same-sex marriage via a public referendum? :)

What about women marriage. Do they have another law?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/finndj

It is called "same-sex marriage," therefore the law applies to both genders. The sentence doesn't stay that two women cannot!

Aside from social justice and national pride, the translation would be better if the 'for' was omitted.
