Finland’s president has signed a law allowing same sex marriage. It’s the first law adopted by the parliament as a result of the initiative of citizens. Over 160,000 people signed a petition demanding it.
President Sauli Niinistö rubber-stamped the gender-neutral marriage law on Friday, after it was supported by parliament last December. However, the law will only come into force in March 2017, because parliament will have to revise current laws and regulations concerning health and social care in accordance with the new bill.
