Industry decides it’s time to grow up

Campaign materials for the Irish same-sex marriage referendum are seen in Dublin on May 13, 2015. Ireland could become the first country in the world to vote for same-sex marriage in a historic referendum on May 22 in this traditionally Catholic nation. Voters will be asked whether or not to add an article to the Irish constitution saying: "Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex."
