Do You Know How To Say “I Do” In Norwegian?

If you do, then maybe you can confirm if this Norwegian news outlet is reporting that Parliament has passed the same-sex marriage bill in a late night vote.

At any rate, I do know that the bill came up for debate on Wednesday, and was expected to pass Wednesday evening — and it’s still Wednesday evening in Oslo. On August 1, 1993, Norway became the second Scandinavian country to provide for same-sex registered partnerships.

I happen to read Norwegian and as I understand the article, the bill WAS still being debated by the smaller portion of the Norwegian Parliament, Odelstinget but was expected to pass.

The day is now over and… WE WON!

The bill passed just a few hours ago.

Here is a more updated article:

I Swedish the magic word is a single “Ja” (=”yes”). I guess it’s the same in Norwegian.
