Same-sex marriage in Germany

Posted on: Wed 5 Jul 2017

Many European countries, like the Netherlands, made same-sex marriage legal years ago, but others like France, Britain and Spain have recently made the policy change.

Germany has joined its neighbouring countries last week.

“So we’ve got about 393 in favour, 226 against and 4 abstained, and it brings Germany in line with a lot of European countries,” said Ineke Mules from Deutsche Welle.

She spoke to breakfast producer, Riley Galloway, about this and other European news.
