The country of Malta voted 66-1 to amend the Malta’s marriage act which has already allowed same-sex civil unions since 2014. Notable amendments made to the act included “husband” and “wife” being replaced with the general-neutral “spouse”, as well as replacing “mother and “father” with “parent who gave birth” and “parent who did not give birth”.



Prime Minister Joseph Muscat had this to say about the vote: “It’s a historic vote. This shows that our democracy and society have reached a level of maturity and we can now say that we are all equal.”



Despite opposition from the Catholic Church only one parliamentarian voted against the amendment.

The amendment was celebrated by the community with gay rights activists partying outside the Prime Ministers office.
