Two women in northern India have tied the knot -- after divorcing their husbands.
The unidentified women, ages 21 and 26, handed their same-sex marriage affidavit to their local court in Hamirpur, northern India, according to India Today.
"Two women came to my office last Friday, and married each other by garlanding one another," sub-registrar Ramkishor Pal told India Today.
The two star-crossed lovers have been in love for the past seven years, but were married to men against their will, according to India Today.
Daya Shankar Tiwari, a lawyer for the couple, said their affidavit was rejected by the court because same-sex marriage is not legal in India.
Tiwari says the 21-year-old is the daughter of a laborer, while her partner is the daughter of a teacher.
In September, the country struck down a colonial-era law that criminalized homosexual acts.
