Tory MP Jason McCartney has praised a number of high-ranking Conservatives for voting in favour of the same-sex marriage bill.
David Burrowes MP, a leading opponent of gay marriage, has said his party's division on the issue reflects the mood of the country.
The Labour peer John Prescott has tweeted about the same-sex marriage bill passing in the Commons.
The whipped programme motion on the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill received 499 Ayes to the right against 55 Noes to the left, passing with a majority of 444.
Tory MP Tim Loughton has said he believes around 139 Conservative MPs voted against the same sex marriage bill, and possibly as many as 40 of them abstained.
If true, that would mean that a substantial majority of the party did not vote with the Prime Minister.
He told BBC News that he did not see it as a reflection on David Cameron's lack of authority.
