Gay Argentinian Couples Get Married

Remember how Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage?

Well yesterday gay couples in Argentina made history as they finally got married!

Here is the picture of the first Argentinian gay couple to tie the knot. They’ve been together for 27 years:

The two men are aged 54 & 65. They've been together for 27 years.

Hours later, another gay couple got married:

This couple has been together for 34 years.

How did those men feel when they finally tied the knot?

“Respect has prevailed over prejudice”.

“What comes now is more love, more freedom, and that can’t be anything but positive”.

Cheers for many more victories to come 🙂

    I used to struggle with issue whether or not this was right. Did same sex couples have the right to get married? Well, now I realize when you love someone, you know really love them, and you’re faithful to that person I think you have every right in the world to do that. When you love someone you love someone …it doesn’t matter same sex, or not you have that right. Thanks for this article BB, and thanks for opening my eyes!

    What beautiful photos..27 and 34 years..WOW. that is really something.

    Great post.

    Love is love..no matter what the gender of the two people involved..

    I’m truly very happy for them. Maybe straight couples could learn a lesson from them. I wonder if the divorce rate for gay couples will be as high as that of straight couples..We shall see!
