KIMT News 3 – Gay marriage is now legal in France, and the bill passed will also allow same-sex couples to adopt.
But it’s not without lots of debate and there are plenty still against it.
Some protests have even turned violent.
Davie Welscher, a supporter of same-sex marriage says it’s sad that voicing your opinion can lead to so much negativity.
“I think violent approaches are not the answer and it should be dealt with harshly. Harming somebody or personally threatening them is going against everything we stand for as humans,” said Welscher.
France is the 14th country to legalize same-sex marriage.
