Add Norway to the list

The list of nations where same-gender marriage is legal, that is. From the English-language version of Norway's Aftenpost newspaper:
Same sex partners will now be able marry as the Norwegian parliament passed a new marriage law on Wednesday. Adoption will be easier and lesbian couples will qualify for state funded fertility treatment.

Conservative religious groups have tried to mobilize opposition against the new law. They worry about the status of marriage in Norway. Progress Party members are concerned about how children will cope with same sex marriages.

Despite efforts from these opponents, the law passed by a two thirds majority.

And, once again, the world steadfastly refuses to come to an end. Funny, that.
