Argentina lower house passed same-sex marriage bill
Meagan McElroy at 12:00 AM ET

On May 5, 2010, the Argentine Chamber of Deputies passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in that country and giving gay couples the right to adopt children. Prior to the the lower legislature's approval of the bill, fifty thousand Argentineans had marched in favor of the legislation in November 2009. The bill was subsequently approved by the Argentine Senate and signed into law by President Cristina Fernandez, making Argentina the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage.
