Gay marriage could be legalized in Denmark in spring 2012.
Currently, only civil unions are possible since 1989 in spite of a support of 69% of the population according to Copenhagen Post.
Church minister Manu Sareen told the Jyllands-Posten newspaper :
"I look forward to the moment the first homosexual couple steps out of the church. I’ll be standing out there throwing rice. I have many friends who are homosexuals and can’t get married. They love their partners the same way heterosexuals do, but they don’t have the right to live it out in the same way. That’s really problematic."
