With a vote of 85-24, Denmark’s Parliament has approved same-sex couples’ right to have full wedding ceremonies in church. Gay couples have been able to marry since 1997, but could only receive short blessing ceremonies at the end of Lutheran church services. Iceland and Sweden similarly allow couples to have full church weddings. The law will take effect next week.
