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? :)

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