Marriage equality bill passes through House of Lords, last major hurdle for same-sex marriage in Britain

Britain’s same-sex marriage bill has cleared its last major hurdle,
passing through the House of Lords and prompting celebrations from
campaigners outside Parliament.

Supporters of the bill
in Parliament’s upper house wore pink carnations Monday as the Lords
agreed to send it back to the House of Commons, where lawmakers will
review government amendments before it becomes law.

That is expected to go without a hitch, as the House of Commons earlier passed the bill 390 to 148.
