On Jan. 31, the Telegraph reported, France’s Women’s Rights Minister, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, declared the law effectively revoked, citing its incompatibility with France’s constitutional equality rights.

Pretty daring stuff. I couldn't be more shocked if Virginia started letting unmarried people live together. Oh, wait. . .
