So, same-sex families are no good for the children? We think that the new Prime Minster of Finland will beg to differ.

Finland’s Sanna Marin, who recently became the world’s youngest serving head of state, was raised by a same-sex couple.

Marin was appointed the country’s new prime minister by the Social Democratic Party on 10December at the age of 34 after former leader resigned.

At the start of its tenure, there will be a total of 19 ministers in Marin Cabinet: seven ministers from the Social Democratic Party, five ministers from the Centre Party, three from the Green League, and two each from the Left Alliance and Swedish People’s Party.

Marin was first elected a Member of Parliament in 2015 and served as Minister of Transport and Communications from 2019 until becoming the nation’s head.

After her mother and father split, Sanna was raised by her mother and her girlfriend. Sanna is married to Markus Räikkönen, and they have a daughter.

Marin became the world’s youngest Prime Minister at the age of 34. She will govern the country as part of a coalition government with four other party leaders who are all also women.
