World’s First Legally Wed Lesbian Couple Mark 10th Anniversary


Two women married ten years, and the world hasn't ended!

AFP reports on the 10th anniversary of Helene Faasen and Anne-Marie Thus:

"We married for love, not politics. But of course we were aware it was an historic moment," 41-year-old Anne-Marie, a notary assistant and gay rights campaigner, said ahead of their 10th anniversary on Friday.

By tying the knot in front of the world's press, "we wanted to make other people think about how horrible it is to be denied something that is a natural right for others," added her wife, 44-year-old notary Helene Faasen.

"A heterosexual person never needs to think about whether he is allowed to marry or not, he simply needs to be lucky enough to find the love of his life."
