Same-Sex Marriage Now Legal For Buenos Aires Tourists

What’s new, Buenos Aires? In legislation passed last week, foreign same-sex couples visiting Buenos Aires can not only visit Evita’s old stomping grounds, but get legally married there, too.

If you want to marry your same-sex partner, just jet down Argentine way, get a temporary address and put in a request five days in advance. (It’s also suggested you hire a lawyer to navigate the paperwork.)

Quicker than you can raise your arms and belt out “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina!,” you’re married!

The eastern province of Sante Fe and the southern province of Tierra del Fuego already allow gay (and opposite-sex) foreign couples to wed. The Argentine Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals is working to expand the law throughout the entire country in hopes it will encourage other nations to introduce marriage equality.

Yeah, but can we have our ceremony on the balcony of the Casa Rosada?

      There are very few things that make me proud of my country. This is one of them. :)

      Seriously, Queerty, No shade but the first few parts read like an infomercial. I was waiting for the “but wait, there’s more” part.
