Well, the "motion to legislate" (preliminary vote basically) passed 22 to 16, exactly the votes it needed to pass.

It might still take a while to get it a approve it though since the government remains uninterested (it was tabled by the opposition, but is the government who largely controls what is reviewed by the Congress)

That moment you see another traditional stronghold of the Catholic church influence on the verge of legalizing the SSM, and you feel embarrassed for your own country not following the suit.

In any case, excellent news (one can only wish it would have happened far earlier, and hope it will become law as soon as possible), and a welcome development given how hopelessly screwed we are (and how worse the future is likely to be).

Yes, we are hopelessly screwed, but I fail to see how it can get any worse. Even under a populist outsider (which is at this point is almost inevitable given the level of incompetence across the political spectrum) I just don't see how can it be worse than this, at worse it will be equally bad. At least he/she probably won't blame K-pop for its problems!.

Anyway, sorry for the Out of topic.
