Court to vote on legality of same-sex marriage this week

The current right-wing Partido Popular, led by PM Mariano Rajoy, filed the appeal when marriage-equality legislation was passed by the then PSOE Socialist Government back in in 2005-claiming that the European nation's constitution defined marriage as being "between one man and one woman" - but it has taken seven years for a ruling to come to court.

The issue was fast-tracked through the courts when the PP took office almost 1 year ago, with Rajoy openly stating that he supports "civil unions" for homosexual couples but does not think they should be officially referred to as "marriages".
