Ireland became the 19th nation to allow same-sex marriage this weekend, but the first nation to approve it by national referendum.

The final vote was just over 62 percent 'yes' to allow same-sex marriage and just under 38 percent for 'no.'

We've heard a lot about the quick change of opinion on same-sex marriage here in the United States, too. MPR News' Tom Crann gets three views: We got the latest from Ireland, heard about the historic change in opinions on the issue in the United States and how Minnesotans United for All Families campaigned to change voters' mind.
