Couple becomes first Pinoy same-sex couple to marry in Italy

A Filipino same-sex couple of 11 years finally tied the knot in a historic ceremony in Milan, Italy, a report on Unang Balita on Friday said.
Jemarie Jamolin and Claridel Galas—now Claridel Jamolin—became the first Filipino same-sex couple to get married in front of Milan's civil registrar.
Italy legalized same-sex civil unions in a 369-193 parliament vote last May that put an end to years of debate between government and both the Catholic Church and conservative politicians.
The Jamolins are OFWs based in Italy who began their relationship in 2005, according to a public Facebook post by Claridel. Rie Takumi/KG, GMA News
