"Same-sex couples will be allowed to legally marry in England and Wales for the first time from midnight."

"While a BBC poll suggests a fifth of British people would turn down an invitation to a same-sex wedding,"

Everyone get your raincoats ready

It's really a shame that it's taking this long to make it legal in first world countries. Or that it's even a question at all.

Third world countries with dictatorships and theocracies I can understand. But the UK?

We've had civil unions since 2004.
