The French National Assembly just voted 331-225 to approve marriage equality in the country.

The vote was not without a little bit of drama though, as protesters stormed the gallery earlier in the day before being removed from the building.

While most residents of France are in favor of marriage equality, the past few weeks have seen a rise in violent demonstrations and hate crimes from some groups and individuals in the country, most notably Les Hommen.

France is now the 14th country to offer marriage equality.
