| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

A milestone in Mexico City:

Mexico City has marked its 1,000th same-sex marriage since lawmakers in the capital approved such unions in March 2010.

The city government says in a statement that about 6 percent of those getting married in same-sex weddings in the city are foreigners.
Unlike marriages performed in the capitol of the United States or any of the other jurisdictions that allow it, Mexico City's same-sex marriages are valid throughout the country.

And, check out these statistics:
The first 1,000 weddings involved 548 gay couples and 452 lesbian pairs. About 85 percent of the marriages were between partners age 31 and older. Mexico’s average marriage age is 28 for men and 25 for women.
