German Supreme Court backs gay marriage law

Germany's Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a law that allows gay couples to marry and gives them many of the same rights as heterosexual spouses.

The court rejected a lawsuit by conservatives who argued it violates constitutional provisions protecting marriage and the family.

Judges at the Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe voted 5-3 to back the law, which was challenged last year by Bavaria and two eastern states.

Germany is cool.
