Marriage equality: Norway is Number Six

The Norwegien parliament today adopted a law granted same-sex couples the right to marry. Dale Carpenter at the Volokh Conspiracy provides the details. In essence, same sex couples can now:

  • Marry (until now they could have registered partnerships)
  • Have their registered partnerships "upgraded" to marriage
  • If they wish, retain their registered partnership
  • Adopt as a couple
  • Access assisted reproductive technologies
