Sweden to Allow Same-Sex Couples to Marry

"Somebody get some flowers! Somebody get a ring!"

I'm trusting this isn't an April Fool's Day prank -- do they even observe this day in Scandinavia? -- but the national legislature in Sweden approved a law today that will open marriage to same-sex couples starting May 1. You can check out the Wikipedia entry that's already up here. Northern Europe now boasts three of the seven countries that don't discriminate on the basis of sex regarding whom their laws allow to get married.
