Gay Utah Couple Has Officially Married

Utahcouple

It's official! Gay marriage has begun in Utah. Seth Anderson and his husband may just be the first same-sex couple to marry in the state. Anderson tweeted an image of him and his husband with their official marriage license not long ago with the caption: "Me and my new husband!! My polygamous Mormon great grandparents would be so proud!" The couple evidently caught the DA and his staff off guard as evidenced by Anderson's updates shared on Twitter.

Ultimately, the couple was able to marry despite an apparent attempt by the DA to thwart their marriage. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Same-Sex Ceremonies Legalized In Vietnam But Marriages Will Not Be Recognized

Vietnam made important strides toward same-sex marriage equality this week when it legalized same-sex wedding ceremonies. Although the unions formed out of these ceremonies will not be recognized by the country as marriages, the news is welcome and exciting for the southeast Asian country. 

VietnamFree District reports:

The decision comes after two fines were imposed last year to two same-sex couples who held weddings ceremonies in Vietnam.

The couples were charged with holding a ceremony “contrary to the habits and customs of Vietnam” and violating the Law on Marriage & Family of Vietnam, which outlaws same-sex marriage, said reports.

After the law was challenged, however, the government backed down, and has decided to allow same-sex weddings.

As Towleroad previously reported, the Vietnamese government has been scheduled to look at a bill which would legalize same-sex marriages as well, but the vote, which would likely have its supporters, has been delayed. 

For now, congratulations to Vietnam and the same-sex couples who are able to have the ceremony of their dreams!

On Friday, ABC News's 'Second Tour' digital series, which profiles the lives of military veterans, did a feature on the couple's historic wedding. It was the first ever same-sex wedding ceremony for the veteran's home facility.

Writes filmmaker and friend Johnny Leon about the wedding of Donavan and Ricardo at the Corradetti Glassblowing Studio in Baltimore: "The two most touching moments were probably when they read their vows in their own languages, and when they broke down in tears after the ceremony and hugged their respective mothers."
