Pakistan judge tells couple they broke Islamic law for same-sex marriage

A Pakistan judge warned a couple Tuesday that their marriage was against both the law and

Islam as they were both women, even though the groom had a sex-change operation 16 years ago.

 

The judge was hearing a case that pits the bride's father - who wants to annul the wedding on religious grounds - and the couple, who said they wed to protect the bride from being sold into marriage to pay off her uncle's gambling debts. (AP)
