Portugal's parliament approves marriage equality

Portugal's parliament has voted in favor of allowing same-sex couples to marry, but the law includes a caveat that prevents same-sex couples from adopting children.

The law is now in committee and will come back to parliament for a final vote before going to President Anibal Cavaco Silva for ratification. Cavaco Silva has indicated in the past that she is not in favor of allowing same-sex couples to marry.

You can read more about the vote at the BBC Web site.
