A lesbian couple who inspired Angela Merkel to soften her opposition to same-sex marriage have said they will invite the German chancellor to their wedding if a bill to legalise the ceremony is passed on Friday. The SPD said last weekend that an agreement on same-sex marriage would be a central condition to any future coalition. The bill is widely expected to pass as it is backed by most parties and Merkel has told lawmakers of her centre-right party, the Christian Democrats CDU , that they can vote according to their conscience. The proposed legislation would grant full marital rights — including the possibility to jointly adopt children — to same-sex couples, who in Germany are now only able to enter civil partnerships. The vote comes after Merkel softened her stance on gay marriage at a Berlin debate on Monday night. Some conservatives from within the CDU and its Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union, have signalled that they may try to block the vote.
