#LoveWins: Historic Victory for Marriage Equality in Ireland
International Progress Toward the Freedom to Marry
“The global momentum for the freedom to marry reflects and reinforces the progress we are making here in the U.S. – and we look now to the Supreme Court to bring our country to national resolution,”
Evan Wolfson said today about historic Ireland marriage vote.
Nineteen countries have approved the freedom to marry for same-sex couples nationwide (Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, Britain, Luxembourg, Finland and Ireland), while two others have regional or court-directed provisions enabling same-sex couples to share in the freedom to marry (Mexico and the United States).
In Slovenia, Parliament approved a marriage bill in March 2015 and is headed to the president’s desk. Many other countries provide some protections for such couples. As more and more countries and parts of the United States win the freedom to marry, we see that families are helped, and communities and countries made stronger, by protecting all loving committed couples.

The world is going in the right direction … let’s follow suit.

Of all countries, I would never have thought Ireland would be one of the early ones in the world to vote for freedom to marry.
