“Switzerland’s executive body says same-sex couples will be able to get married in the rich Alpine nation starting on July 1 next year. In setting the date on Wednesday, the Federal Council made good on the resounding support Swiss voters expressed for same-sex marriage in a September referendum. Voters passed the ‘Marriage for All’ referendum by nearly a two-thirds margin in September, Reuters reports. … The council also said that starting Jan. 1, Switzerland will recognize the marriages of same-sex couples who wed in other countries instead of continuing to treat the unions as simple civil partnerships.” (11/18/21)
