No Human Right to Gay Marriage

Or, so declared the European Court of Human Rights: 

Gay marriage is not recognized in Finland, and it appears to be staying that way at least for now.

 The European Court of Human Rights has declined to issue a ruling that, as a practical matter, would have imposed same-sex marriage on that country and perhaps by precedent other countries in the euro zone.

According to the court, “[I]t cannot be said that there exists any European consensus on allowing same-sex marriages.”
