Same-Sex Couples Can Now Legally Tie the Knot in Ireland

 

Same-sex marriage is now legal in the Republic of Ireland after legislation passed by referendum in May came into effect Monday.

The Catholic country became the first in the world to make gay marriage legal by popular vote. 62 percent of Irish voters signaled their support for extending marriage rights to gay couples in May.

The Vatican called the vote a "defeat for humanity".
