Same-Sex Marriage and Adoption Are Now Legal in Finland
Same-sex marriage officially became legal in Finland yesterday. Same-sex couples also gained the right to adopt children.
According to Yle, the Local Register Office of western Finland reports that 41 same-sex couples plan to wed this week.
Same-sex marriage was approved by MPs back in 2014, but conservative activists kept the law from going into effect.
