Even though civil unions were legal in Iceland, the government has found the courage to legalize same-sex marriage.

The first people to be married under the new law were Johanna Sigurdardottir, the Prime Minister, and her journalist partner Jonina Leosdottir. (That would make her the first openly gay world leader, too. Belgium may get a gay Prime Minister later on.)

With this and the recent passage of the Icelandic Modern Media Institute bill, it sounds like they've got their heads on straight.
