'Marriage for all' a step closer in France after MPs' vote

http://www.euronews.com/ A bill to legalise same-sex marriage in France has taken a major step towards becoming law. The National Assembly - the lower part of the French parliament - has approved a bill on the issue, with three hundred and twenty nine votes for and two hundred and twenty nine against. Known in France as "marriage for all", the bill also paves the way homosexual couples to be able to adopt children. Opponents are not giving up. "The bill will probably be adopted. That's a first reading in the National Assembly, then comes the Senate, the second reading, then our Constitutional Court. So it's not the end of the story yet," said Hervé Mariton, a deputy from the opposition UMP party. The vote follows months of debate and controversy - which provoked mass rallies across France both for and against. Polls show most French people are in favour. "Marriage for all" has become one of the most divisive issues under the new left-wing government. If the bill gets through the Senate and the final hurdles, France will become the 12th country including several in Europe to legalise same-sex marriage. British MPs backed it in a first vote last month. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

Soon, probably, homosexual couples will be able to get married and adopt children in France. One step to this divisive issue has been recently taken in the French National Assembly. Gays and lesbians have already started to celebrate this big event, puritans are indignant with this. What are my thoughts, busuu asks me... I wonder, what will happen if a little boy or a girl will rise in a gay family and will see kissing his / her daddies everyday? Is it normal? Will it have an influence on their lives? Will become these children also homosexual? Ukraine is a Puritan country and I have never seen gay couples with children here. I don't want to judge, I want to understand but I can't.

Soon, probably, homosexual couples will be able to get married and adopt children in France. A step towards legalising these actions has been recently taken in the French National Assembly.  This issue is dividing public sentiment. Gays and lesbians have already started celebrating.   Puritans remain indignant. What are my thoughts, busuu asks me... I wonder, what happens when a little boy or a girl growing up in a gay family sees their daddies kissing every day?  What influence will it have on their lives?  Will these children also become homosexual?  Ukraine is a puritan country and I have never seen gay couples with children here.  Will it ever be considered normal?  I don't want to judge.  I want to understand but I can't.

Well, Alla, you sure have attempted a very contraversial subject!  You have done an excellent job explaning your position.  I can't add anything to Blowiej65 and Jim_t's comments and corrections with the exception of, in Jim_T"s secont to last sentence.  The ukraine is the name of a  region;  Ukraine is the name of the country
