Personally, although I was a supporter of the PACS and I have always thought that it was ridiculous to ban gay couple from adopting kids – I don't believe for a minute that mother+father is the key formula to properly raise children or that parenting has anything to do with sexual preferences–, I have never been in favour of "gay marriage" per se, because I considered it to be super hetero-conformist or even just conformist.

That bill will be a step in the right direction, but there's still progresses to make, concerning family and rights equality, since non-married couple cannot adopt children (while single people can), and non married persons (either homosexual or not) cannot benefit from medically assisted procreation. Which is highly ironical when you think that one marriage in 2 ends with a divorce.
Someday maybe this society won't revolve around the model of two married human beings or even around the couple norm.
