France is the fifteenth country worldwide to allow same-sex couples to marry. The legislation applies to the French overseas collectivities, including New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna and French Polynesia.
A bill that would grant same-sex couples the right to marry and jointly adopt children, Bill 344, was introduced to the National Assembly by the Socialist government of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on 7 November 2012, with the support of President François Hollande, who declared his intent to support the legislation during his campaign for the presidency.
On 12 February 2013, the National Assembly approved the bill in a 329–229 vote. On 12 April 2013, the Senate approved the bill with amendments in a 171-165 vote, followed by the approval of the amended bill by the National Assembly on 23 April 2013 in a 331-225 vote.
However a challenge to the law by the conservative UMP party was filed with the Constitutional Council following the vote.
On 17 May 2013, the Council ruled that the law is constitutional and the following day, President Francois Hollande signed the bill.
