Breaking news: Colombia finally legalizes same-sex marriage

In a ruling that was widely anticipated, the Colombian Constitution Court just issued a landmark 6-3 ruling which finally legalizes same-sex marriage nationwide. 

The decision had been postponed several times in the last weeks but, as was expected, the final vote of high court decided to extend the right to marry to gay couples.

This ruling follows a 2011 decision which declared that unions between same-sex couples fall under the government’s definition of families.
