Bermuda Becomes First Country to Repeal Gay Marriage

Bermuda on Wednesday enacted a repeal of same-sex marriage, making it the first country to roll back the policy after having instituted it. John Rankin, the governor, signed the legislation after both houses of the country’s legislature passed it. Additionally, the measure won support from Bermudans in a referendum. Under the new policy, same-sex couples will be able to enter into domestic partnerships that would grant them “equivalent” rights, according to Rankin.
