Blimey! Both the House of Commons and the House of Lords have just signed off on a bill that legalizes same-sex marriage! YES! Very soon, any Union Jack will be able to marry Bob's your Uncle!
On top of that, the bill was just given the royal assent by the Queen, which means the law is finally official! All England needs is the royal baby to be born today, and this might become "their finest hour."
Although the scope of the bill is somewhat limited by excluding Northern Ireland and Scotland, and adding a stipulation that the Church of England won't perform any same sex marriage ceremonies, the bill also includes protections for married citizens who consider themselves to be transgender!
In addition, same sex couple will be able to start tying the knot in the summer of 2014!
Overall, this is AH-mazing news! You rule Britannia!! Uh, can we rejoin as colonies or what?
