The Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires is opening up marriage equality to same-sex couples visiting the city.
The South American nation has offered same-sex marriage since 2010, but now the option will be available to Buenos Aires tourists who place a request five days in advance. Couples must also provide a temporary address while in the city.
ThinkProgress reports that city officials suggest that couples intending to marry hire a local lawyer to help them file the appropriate paperwork. The attorneys should also be able to point out if the Buenos Aires nuptials will have any recognition in the couples' home nations.
