Iceland's P.M. Marries Partner


Iceland's prime minister was among the first gay people to marry in her country as its marriage equality law went into effect Sunday.

Johanna Sigurdardottir married her longtime partner, Jonina Leosdottir, when the couple requested that their seven-year-old civil union be transferred into a marriage, according to London's Telegraph.

The Icelandic parliament unanimously passed a marriage equality bill June 12. Sigurdardottir took office in February 2009.
