German State Drops Challenge to Marriage Equality


A conservative-leaning state in Germany has dropped plans to challenge gay marriage equality laws for same-sex couples. Germany brought the laws in last year giving same-sex couples full marital rights and allows them to adopt children.

393 politicians voted for marriage equality, while 266 voted against including the Chancellor Angela Merkel.
