“MARRIED IN CANADA”— Seven Stories

“Married in Canada”

Seven Stories

Amos Lassen

“Married in Canada” is a new documentary that follows seven love stories which show why getting married is so important for same=sex couples in America. The states they live in the United States prohibit their marriages yet the people involved show us why it is important and worthwhile to overcome the obstacles they face. The couples went to Canada to marry but once they returned home to America, they are no longer considered legally married. We see their marriage ceremonies and see why the days they married are the most important days in their lives. From what I understand this is the first film to explore out of the country marriages and the consequences and it concentrates on the fight for equality.
