Two Swedish lesbians broke a barrier in India this weekend when they married at the Taj Mahal:
The young women, Sara and Sandra had been living together in India’s national capital, New Delhi for past one year and ‘solemnized’ their marriage according to the Vedic rites and rituals.
The newly married couple said that they were extremely happy to get married in the city of Taj Mahal, the monument of love and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
According to Baba Dharam Das, the temple priest said that although he had some misgivings, when the two women said that they are in love with each other and wanted to get married, he solemnised the marriage.
“These two foreigners came here and said that they want to get married according to the Hindu rituals. They said that they would get married and it would be a woman-woman marriage. I conducted the marriage and they are happy now,”said Das.
