The marriage between same-sex couples is now possible in Costa Rica following the January 9th decision of the Corte Interamerican de Derechos Humanos – Inter-American Court of Human Rights – ordering the country to implement equal marriages.

Arias, who is Costa Rican and Castillo, a Venezuelan national, expressed their emotion because they will now be able to formalize their bond. The couple, who say they met online in 2012 and have been living together for the last two year, are planning a party in the evening.
