Paris: The French constitutional court on Friday upheld the country`s gay marriage ban, saying it was in keeping with the Constitution.
The court made the ruling in response to a bid by a lesbian couple, who have four children, to marry after spending 10 years in a PACS, or civil union.
Several of France`s European Union fellow member states, including Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands, have legalised homosexual marriage.
