Comfortable, Definitely, and Family: khadij-al-kubra:
Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole. ‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS
“Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage”
that is amazing
Okay but other reports state that Alina identifies as androgyne but feels more comfortable as a woman, it definitely is trans excellence but the label she uses is not reported correctly here.
Thanks for the info! (This means it’s not only trans excellence but also NONBINARY EXCELLENCE YEAH!)
“Can I be woman?”
“I am still man?”
“I can has wife, then?”
[Russian government sweats nervously]
Ya gotta love loopholes!
Dude, Fafsa, and Lawyer: Can you marry me
I just got back from my school
and they said they cannot give
me any aid except for
unsubsidised loans unless l
have a child, get married, or
turn 24, so I have to get married
Yeah ok I'll marry you I need a
better fafsa application too
Would you really do it
Im doing actual research on it
Are we doing this
It would have to happen like
lightning fast cause my next
semester happens pretty
I don't know how fast this
happens lemme check
Ughhhh okay so we'd need to get
a marriage license which can be
up to $30 depending on where we
get it, and THEN we need to file
for a marriage certificate
I'm an ordained minister but idk if
I could file my own marriage
get ordained and do it
Can we go to Indiana?

Dude Im so excited
Its possible that I can get
FAFSA to pay for an entire
apartment for me to go to
school in Milwaukee
Okay so there's no minister
registration required in lllinois so
Yeah I'm looking that up right
Ive heard that if one partner
commits adultery, thats
grounds for a quicker divorce
Yeah this sample form I'm
looking at says "irretrievable
breakdown" of marriage
Worse comes to worse we can
stage a fight but I think we can
just say yeah it's not working out
Does it include adultery
divorce ranging from $15,000
to $30,000. Most of this money
is spent on legal fees.
So Fuck lawyers
We don't need a lawyer
We don't have kids we don't have
property to divide up
Oh thats only for a lawyer
We don't have alimony to
We're just two guys being dudes.
Gettin a divorce
A. imagine your otp
B. dear gods this country has massive issues
I’ve been looking for this post for ages
listen, I’ve read enough fanfic to know that they’re not getting divorced, but it’ll take about 35k of pining to figure that out.
