The world’s most renowned dictionary of the English language has said the definition of ‘marriage’ will change to include gay people.  

The home of the Oxford English Dictionary, England, has recently passed a law allowing same-sex couples to get married.

While the definition and the law did not change simultaneously, the brains behind the words say they will monitor how the word marriage changes over the next year.

Speaking to Gay Star News, an Oxford University Press spokeswoman said: ‘We continually monitor the words in our dictionaries, paying particular to those words whose usage is shifting, so yes, this will happen with marriage.’
