Congrats Swedes

Timothy Kincaid

Today is the first day that Sweden will allow same-sex marriages. Congratulations are in order.

However, for church weddings, Swedes will have to wait a bit longer.

the Lutheran Church, which was the state church until 2000, has said that while it supports the new law, its synod will only formally decide in October whether to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies.

For those marrying right away or for those waiting for a church wedding, we wish you all the best.

From my understanding, most Europeans have both a civil wedding and then a religious ceremony after. This will just make for a longer period between the two. Congrats to the Swedes — one more nation that has moved into the real world.
