They're only six and one but it still makes me happy to know that they will have the chance to marry anyone they choose, male or female.

Finally, sense prevails.

BacardiNCoke Tue 05-Feb-13 19:51:47

Fantastic news!

Snusmumriken Tue 05-Feb-13 19:52:52

Great news!

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Tue 05-Feb-13 19:53:06

Wonderful.

Excellent news - and one in the eye for the homophobic morons claiming they are not homophobic.

Hugely relieved, and by a good number too. The number of dinosaurs the Beeb have been digging out of attics to spout their bigoted nonsense, I was actually starting to worry.

lubeybooby England Tue 05-Feb-13 19:53:53

Amazing. About time too!

LineRunner Tue 05-Feb-13 19:54:07

I am actually proud of those 400 MPs.

Where was Cameron ffs?

That's a lovely thought. And they'll never have known any different. It will be completely ordinary to them. smile

It's about time! Another step in the right direction for society

CMOTDibbler Tue 05-Feb-13 19:56:28

Tis brilliant, but about time too!

VinegarDrinker Tue 05-Feb-13 19:56:33

" And they'll never have known any different. It will be completely ordinary to them."

That really does make me happy.

hermioneweasley Tue 05-Feb-13 19:57:03

Lovely.

Velve Tue 05-Feb-13 19:57:32

I'm basking in the warm fuzzy feeling this gives me!

LeonardoAcropolis Tue 05-Feb-13 19:58:34

Wonderful news,

LineRunner Tue 05-Feb-13 19:59:00

Bless him, John Bercow actually looked all excited when he was saying 'The ayes have it!'

Wolfiefan Tue 05-Feb-13 19:59:39

I'm so glad. Another step in the right direction. How can love and marriage be a good thing but only if you are straight? (Sorry but that seems totally bloody bonkers to me emoticon).

I have no idea what the sexuality of my two will end up being. I just want them to be happy, loved and loving.

noddyholder Tue 05-Feb-13 19:59:40

I think this takes away a lot of the patriarchal crap that marriage has always implied and the being given away etc and I think a lot more straight couples will get married now too as this has changed the implication. I know it has for me

JakeBullet Tue 05-Feb-13 19:59:56

I really thought this wouldn't get through after hearing sone of the dinosaurs today. So relieved.

LalyRawr Tue 05-Feb-13 20:01:14

Complete joke that it took this long.

But for once, just once, I am so proud of the 400 who voted yes.

Especially loved the "I queue with you in the commons, I queue with you in the chambers. Wy then, when it comes to marriage, do you insist I queue in a seperate line?"

Good man.

NotALondoner Tue 05-Feb-13 20:03:14

so if people have had a civil partnership, can they marry as well?

Hurrah!

MechanicalTheatre Tue 05-Feb-13 20:04:10

Well let's not get too excited, it still has to go through the Lords.
