First lesbian couple to marry in Costa Rica

first lesbian couple to marry in costa rica

Such an emotional ceremony which was also broadcast live on National TV.

Costa Rica recently made equal marriage legal and just a few minutes after midnight Daritza Araya and Alexandra Castillo celebrated their marriage and love in San Isidro de Heredia.

Sí Acepto Campaing director Gia Miranda said: “As the country and the world face the difficult situation of the pandemic, this historic milestone becomes even more relevant. It’s a message of a better future for thousands of couples and families who will receive the legal recognition they deserve.”

Standing before a marriage officiant in a face mask given the hard situation that South and Central Americas are still facing with Coronavirus, they each exchanged their vows:
“With this ring I join you in marriage. This ring symbolises my infinite love and respect. May this ring remind you that I am always by your side in energy and love.”

The organisation had been planning a public party to mark the milestone, but this was unfortunately not possible due to COVID-19 restrictions. But this was something to be celebrated in any case and LGBT+ couples and activists celebrated the country’s journey to same-sex marriage in a broadcast on state television and social media.

Mazal Tov girls… and my love always guide your life as a family.
