End time! Colombia approves 3-man marriage (Photos)


Three gay men say they have gained legal recognition as the first “polyamorous family” in Colombia, where same-sex marriages were legalised last year.

“We wanted to validate our household… and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” said one of the men, actor Victor Hugo Prada, in a video published by Colombian media on Monday.


He said he and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez (all pictured), signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights.


“This establishes us as a family, a polyamorous family. It is the first time in Colombia that has been done.” Lawyer and gay rights activist German Rincon Perfetti said there are many three-person unions in Colombia but this was the first one to be legally recognised.

“It is a recognition that other types of family exist,” he told AFP. 

A ruling by the constitutional court in April 2016 made Colombia the 4th South American country to definitively legalise same-sex marriage, after Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
