After voting in a referendum, about 65 percent of the Swiss people supported the government’s plan for “marriage for all.”
Partnerships had previously been established in Switzerland for same-sex couples, but they have not conferred the same privileges as marriage.
Increased options to adopt children and seek for citizenship will occur as a result of the new election outcome.
As a result, lesbian couples will be able to receive sperm donation services at clinics. Gay marriage is legal in 29 nations worldwide, according to the United Nations.
That means Switzerland will be one of the last nations in Western Europe to vote in favor of that proposal.
