France Becomes 14th Country to Legalize Gay Marriage

Hosted by

Despite massive protests that flooded the streets of Paris, the Socialist majority of the French National Assembly legalized same-sex marriage today. France is the fourteenth nation to recognize same-sex marriage and the third in the past two weeks. But conservative opponents promise to continue their protests. Has the new law been used to channel wider unhappiness over the policies of Socialist President Francois Hollande? Steve Erlanger is Paris Bureau Chief for the New York Times.
