South Africa to wed gay couples reports that South Africa became the 5th nation to extend marriage equality to gay and lesbian couples.

The Constitutional Court, the highest court in South Africa, ruled that it is unconstitutional to deny gay and lesbian couples the right to marry.

The court ordered Parliament to amend marriage laws within 12 months. If it fails to act within that timeframe, the court said the ruling would automatically change the law to include same-sex unions.

Now, when will our state Supreme Court issue its decision?
