British lawmakers voted in favor of a same-sex marriage bill on Tuesday, which, if passed, will take effect in 2015.
Lawmakers met in The House of Commons and voted overwhelmingly in favor of a bill to legalize gay-marriage, CBS News reported.
Though the vote for the legislation resulted in an astounding 400-175 support, the bill still needs to go through more debates and also a vote in The House of Lords, said CBS officials.
Prime Minister David Cameron was pleased with the heavy support in favor of the bill, despite a strongly opposed Conservative Party, Cameron said in ABC News.
In an interview with Cameron, he recognized the conflicting opinions on each side, but said the result was a "step forward for our country."
