Germany's President Signs Marriage Equality Into Law

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has signed into law legislation making same-sex marriage legal in the most populous state in the European Union.

The German Parliament approved the legislation on June 30th and the new law will come into force October 1.

However, that's if the state of Bavaria doesn't file a challenge with Germany's Constitutional Court. Bavaria's Minister President Horst Seehofer is reportedly considering such action.

Stay tuned.
