Another Reason To Celebrate Today

The Spanish parliament has voted in favour of allowing gay couples to marry and adopt children. When the law comes into effect in a month’s time, Spain will become the third European country after the Netherlands and Belgium to legalise same-sex marriage.
Excellent news! And if Martin and I decide to move to sunnier climes when we’re getting old and doddery, then now at least we know that our marriage will continue to be recognised in Spain…
Update: Extracts from Prime Minister Zapatero’s speech are here, translated by Rex Wockner. An amazing speech.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
