Costa Rica becomes first in Central America to allow gay marriage

World
May 26 (UPI) -- Costa Rica became the first country in Central America to legalize same-sex marriage Tuesday. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, thousands of people watched Daritza Araya Arguedas, 24, and Alexandra Quiros Castillo, 29, get married early Tuesday morning as the first same-sex couple to legally do so in Costa Rica.
