Swiss broadcaster SRG recently announced the findings of a survey on same-sex marriage. According to the survey, 64 percent of the country’s voters are in support of same-sex marriage.
According to a Reuters story, same-sex marriage will be allowed in Switzerland through a referendum.
64 percent of the country’s voters support same-sex marriage. Through this, the country maintained a balance with Western Europe.
The legalization of same-sex marriage in Switzerland is a milestone move, Amnesty International said in a statement. It will be a ‘milestone of equality’ for all residents.
However, the country’s conservative political parties did not take the subject of same-sex marriage well. They have severely denounced it, saying such a practice will damage Switzerland.
Same-sex couples will be permitted to adopt children from other families once the same-sex marriage is legalized. Gay couples can also donate their sperm if they choose.
