Portugal's President Ratifies Gay Marriage Law


Portugal's conservative president announced Monday he is reluctantly ratifying a law allowing gay marriage, making the predominantly Catholic country the sixth in Europe to let same-sex couples wed.


President Anibal Cavaco Silva said he would not veto the bill because majority liberal lawmakers would only overturn his decision. The country must focus instead on battling a crippling economic crisis that has increased unemployment and deepened poverty, he said.

Hey look, the crisis is good for somethingCollapse )

Like most people, it's stupid that he was obviously not happy with this law, but it's good news :)
