Voters in the country have backed a move to have marriage recognised as that between a man and a women in the constitution.
Following the gathering of some 740,000 signatures to force the

In the Name of the Family was backed by 66% of those who voted last
The Catholic Church backed the aims of the referendum, which
will now see marriage defended as between a man and woman until and
unless at least two-thirds of parliamentarians vote for a change.
