Mexico City reaches 1,000th same-sex marriage

Mexico City has marked its 1,000th same-sex marriage since lawmakers in the capital approved marriage equality in March 2010. The city government states that about 6 percent of those getting married are foreigners. The first 1,000 weddings includes 548 gay couples and 452 lesbian pairs. About 85 percent of the marriages were between partners age 31 and older. The 1,000th wedding took place Sunday, uniting a 37-year-old Mexican university researcher and a 29-year-old Dutch man.
