Writing for PinkNews about the same-sex marriage legislation today, Liberal Democrat party leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg MP says "I couldn't be prouder - and that goes for the whole Liberal Democrat party"

"If you've already popped the question, you can now set a date. From Saturday 29 March 2014, the first equal marriage ceremonies will be taking place in England and Wales.

"These same-sex wedding ceremonies will mark not just the beginning of a new life for some as husband and husband or wife and wife, but also a landmark moment for all gay couples and individuals across our country. Finally, if they want to, they will now have the same legal right to marry as heterosexual couples."
