London, Jun 28: Prime Minister of Iceland, Johanna Sigurdardottir, has tied the knot with her long-time partner, Jonina Leosdottir. The marriage happened as a new law legalizing homosexual marriages came into force.
The 68-year-old PM officially married Jonina Leosdottir, a writer, after the couple submitted a demand for their civil union to be converted into matrimony.
She has lived with Ledsdottir, who is in her fifties, for many years and the couple entered a civil union in 2002.
The parliament of Iceland collectively adopted legislation permitting same sex marriage, in a law that came into force on Sunday, Jun 27.
She is the world's first openly gay head of government.
