Almost two-thirds of Swiss voters have backed same-sex marriage in a referendum. Campaigners have hailed the vote as a historic moment for LGBT rights in the country.
In the build up to the vote, church groups and conservative political parties opposed the idea, saying it would undermine the traditional family. Switzerland has allowed same-sex couples to register partnerships sincebut some rights are restricted.
The measure will make it possible for same-sex couples to adopt unrelated children and for married lesbian couples to have children through sperm donation. It makes Switzerland the 30th country in the world to adopt same-sex marriage.
Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter said the first same-sex marriages would take place in July next year. But Monika Rueegger, a politician with the right-wing Swiss People's Party and an opponent of the measure, said children and fathers were the losers. Over the last 20 years, most countries in western Europe have recognised same-sex marriage. However, in Switzerland many big decisions go to a nationwide ballot, and this can slow down major changes to social legislation.
The new law, which had the backing of the Swiss government and all major political parties except the People's Party, was passed by parliament in December. However, it was then challenged by opponents, who gathered enough atures to force a referendum. Switzerland votes on same-sex marriage. Hungary proposes same-sex adoption ban.
