franceMONTPELLIER, FRANCE – It was the gay je fais heard around the world.

Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau, exchanged wedding vows, becoming the first legally wedded same-sex couple in France.

France has allowed civil partnerships for several years, but same-sex marriages became the law of the land earlier this month.

As in the United States, the issue of same-sex marriage creates a divided union.

Over the weekend, opponents to same-sex marriages marched in Paris. But their support may be dwindling.

France is now the ninth European nation to approve same-sex marriages. The United Kingdom is thinking about it.

But none of that matters to Vincent and Bruno, who are probably looking forward to the honeymoon, and more than just a French kiss.
