The first same-sex couple in Columbia to be legally married was forcibly unmarried by a judge, but has now been re-married by another.

On Top Magazine reports:

Judge Eduardo Diaz annulled the first marriage earlier month, saying there is no constitutional right for gay people to marry. The Husband and Wife Foundation, an anti-gay group run by Javier Suarez, moved to have the marriage canceled. But on Thursday, the Superior Court of Bogota disagreed with Diaz and upheld the marriage, local media reported. “Judge’s order which annulled Colombia’s first gay marriage has been revoked,” gay rights group Colombia Diversa tweeted. “Marriage is still valid.”

Ah, the marriage roller coaster. Same-sex couples who live in California know it well.
