Jose Maria Di Bello and his partner, Alex Freyre, were granted a marriage license in Buenos Aires on Monday after a judge ruled that a ban on marriage equality violates Argentina's constitution. Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri said the city will not appeal -- "in effect inviting other same-sex couples to pursue their rights in court as well." [Link]
