    Today, Rodrigo Borda and Sergio Miranda became the first couple to make marriage equality in Uruguay a reality.

    They have been together for 14 years.

    They plan to have a very public wedding, partially so other gay couples may see them as an example.

    Uruguay is the second South American country to pass an equal marriage bill, after Argentina.
