Pesky Indian citizenship halts Spanish gay wedding

by Jeremy Hooper

   A gay male couple living in Spain were told they couldn't marry today because one half of the couple is from India, a country that does not allow for gay marriage. A civil code binding foreign residents to the laws of the country where they hold citizenship was cited as reason for the shutout.

This marks the first time since the historic 'marriage-allowing' ruling that Spanish gays have been officially told that they're free to wed only other Spaniards, citizens of the Netherlands and Belgium, or anyone whose hoo-hahs do not match that of their own.
