LONDON (AP) — Britain on Wednesday legalized gay marriage after Queen Elizabeth II gave her royal stamp of approval, clearing the way for the first same-sex weddings next summer.

Lawmakers cheered as House of Commons Speaker John Bercow said royal assent had been given — one day after the bill to legalize same-sex marriage in England and Wales cleared Parliament.

The queen's approval was a formality and is the last step necessary for a bill to become law.

The law enables gay couples to get married in both civil and religious ceremonies in England and Wales, provided that the religious institution consents. The Church of England, the country's official faith, is barred from performing such ceremonies.

It also will allow couples who had previously entered into civil partnerships — which were introduced in 2005 and carry similar rights and responsibilities to marriage — to convert their relationships to marriage.....snip~

Even Britain is getting on the boat thought the Church of England still seems stuck in the past.

She has no choice regarding approval of legislation. Once a year she gets her glad rags on and is dressed in jewelry to read out the current government's policy ideas and proposals in front of both houses.

Anyhow, re gay marriage - about time too. We've have civil partnerships for a while but this will make for full and proper equality.
