WATCH: Gay Teen Couple Weds In D.C. (No Shotgun Needed)

When David Harris and Tre’Darrius Anderson, both 19, got married in Washington D.C. on January 18, they may have become the youngest gay African-American couple to legally tie the knot. Their journey to the altar was not an easy one, though, as documented on their upcoming episode of the Canadian docu-series My Teenage Wedding:

David and Tre’Darrius, both 19, are young, black, and gay, and getting married in not-so-progressive Memphis. But the odds are stacked against them. Once very popular, David’s friends ostracized him after he came out in high school. Neither mother is responding to the wedding invite. And their only adult supporter, Tre’s uncle Theo, thinks they’re too young to marry. When flaky groomsman Rico says he might have to work on the wedding day, the couple is crushed. The biggest obstacle, though, is making the marriage legal. That means going to Washington, DC, but Tre must first get over his fear of flying!

David and Tre’Darrius’ episode premieres tonight at 6:30pm EST on Canada’s Slice network.

      What a cute couple! Normally, I’d say 19 was too young, but they look like they’re taking it very seriously.

      Awww. For someone like myself who doesn’t believe in ‘marriage’, this couple sure has me singing a different tune after watching that. Such a beautiful thing. Congrats to them both.

      And the groomsmen were cute! =D

      My ONLY concern on this one is……if all of you could remember who you were dating when you were 19,20,21….and just think if you had married them! Uuuuuggggghhhh!!! LOL

      That said, I wish this adorable couple the best and hope they fund happiness, success and a loving supportive community wherever they end up living.

      It is a shame that everyone is so against them…but it looks like they are going to try to make it work. I wish them well.
