Two steps forward and one step back.

Because gay couples would still prohibited by law from adopting.

I'm still missing something. They couldn't previously marry or adopt, right? So being able to marry is a step forward, no?

That's the two steps forward that PW was talking about. I was just saying the step back is not really a step back.

:yeahthat:

On the other hand, an argument could be made that it's not really full marriage rights if even married gay couples are barred from adoption.

That's why I said two steps forward, one step back. It still is going forward though, now they need to work on full rights. It always seems that is the way these things go--baby steps, with a lot of faltering. But each step forward is that much closer to full rights. So while it's good news to hear, it's not completely finished.

It's settled, then. Portugal has taken no more or less than a single step forward.

President now says he'll ratify:
Quote:
Portugal's President Anibal Cavaco Silva says he will sign a law legalising same-sex marriage passed by parliament earlier this year.

The law had been fiercely opposed by conservatives in the Catholic country.

The ratification will make Portugal the sixth country in Europe to allow same-sex marriage after Belgium, Spain, Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden.
BBC News - Portugal's president to ratify same-sex marriage law

Quote:
The announcement comes days after Pope Benedict, on a visit to Portugal, told pilgrims they should oppose the law.

Portugal's Constitutional Court validated the bill last month.

So I've never understood why Doctor X capitalizes those letters. I must have missed that episode of Seinfeld. Can someone explain?
