Chileans have been celebrating after their Congress approved equal marriage yesterday. Votes by politicians were overwhelmingly in favour of the legislation, with the Senate voting 21-8 in favour and the Chamber of Deputies voting 82-20 in favour of same-sex unions. After the vote in the chamber, several deputies hugged, including some from opposing parties. Outside the senate building, the news was greeted by jubilant scenes, with couples hugging and kissing and some tear-jerking proposals. The bill, which also legalised same-sex adoption, will come into force in 90-days.
