  1. Good luck to then. It’s so special how parts of the World are changing for the better. I’m honoured to see this happening in my lifetime. (and such a shame that so much of the World still thinks its 1492)

    Congratulations to the couple!

    So if full legalisation of equal marriage hasn’t yet happened under the law in Brazil, would that now make England and Wales number 15 instead of 16?

  4. Another one bites the dust

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand another one down another one down, another one bites the dust!

    Congratulations Sergio & Rodrigo, I wish you a happy marriage! Love to all happy couples in Uruguay

    The couple are technically the second to marry, as the first were a gay couple in their 60s, one of whom is terminally ill, and were given a waiver allowing them to marry on 5 August when the law officially took effect. Their wedding took place in a Montevideo hospital, and a witness described it as “very special”.

    Sweet!! Got me a little misty eyed.

  5. Much better immigration and residency opportunities than New Zealand.

  6. not sure about personal style of the couple but nevertheless congratulations to the newly wed

    well done uruguay
