France's Constitutional Council nixes gay marriage

France's Constitutional Council has ruled that two women raising four children together do not have the right to wed.
The body that ensures that all laws respect the constitution says Friday that those currently on the books outlawing gay marriage do so.
The couple had hoped that France would join EU partners including Spain, Belgium and Netherlands that have legalized same-sex marriage.
The two women have lived together for 15 years.
