Scotland today became the 17th (I think) country to legalize gay marriages, according to the BBC.
The first weddings of gay couples could take place as early as this fall.
As our own Becca Morn wrote in her year-end summary for 2013, In just the past year, we’ve gone from 10 states and DC that recognize gay unions to 17.
And internationally, we saw the UK, France, New Zealand, Brazil and Uruguay all legalize gay marriage.
Wikipedia has a bit more background on the international roundup, pre-Scotland:
Same-sex marriage is legally recognized nationwide in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Uruguay. In the United States, same-sex marriages are recognized on the federal level, though same-sex couples can only marry in sixteen of the fifty states and Washington D.C. In Mexico, same-sex marriages are only performed regularly in Mexico City and Quintana Roo, but these marriages are recognized by all Mexican states and by the Mexican federal government. Israel does not recognize same-sex marriages performed on its territory, but recognizes same-sex marriages performed in foreign jurisdictions.
