Most members of the British House of Commons voted in favor of the legalization of same-sex marriages in England and Wales, despite the disapproval of the 161 deputies.

366 members of the House voted for the bill and applause greeted the announcement of results.

Most critics of the bill are members of the Conservative Party.

On Monday, the Government's proposal to legalize same-sex marriage back on the discussion in the House of Commons. According to the results of the debate the Tories have reached an agreement with the Labour Party's support of the bill.

Draft marriage law was approved by a majority of 225 votes of the members in February, but almost half of the Conservative faction then voted against it.
