First Same-Sex Marriage in Portugal

Teresa Pires and Helena Paixao, both divorced mothers in their 30s who have been together since 2003, married in Portugal marking the first same-sex marriage to occur in the country after the law changed a few months ago. (Unfortunately same-sex couples are still not allowed to adopt.)

The couple – who had campaigned for a change to the law – described it as a “great victory, a dream come true”.
