Indeed, on Tuesday, a bill was introduced in the House of Lords at Westminster and we are waiting for a decision within a few days.
This measure comes after the government has said it wants to allow a free vote “on matters of conscience such as equal marriage” in Northern Ireland, despite the matter being devolved to Belfast (Northern Ireland's capital).
Belfast Assembly has already voted five times on same-sex marriage. The last time it had approved it with a single vote of difference, but, unfortunately, the Conservative government of Northern Ireland had vetoed the law.
Northern Ireland is the only country in the United Kingdom that has not legalized equal marriage yet.I hope that we will have good news in a a few days.
