While sexually seems to be a hotly contested issue of late, this Saturday saw some good news comes out of South America. Edgar de Souza and Alexsandro Trindade celebrated 13 years of love by getting married in Lins, a small city 270 miles outside of São Paulo, Brazil.

Together in a stable relationship for 13 years, de Sousa and Trindade knew each other back in their teens. Though they didn’t start dating until years later, their marriage almost feels like destiny.

“Although we’ve already considered ourselves married, we understand being officially married is an important right. It’s also a reaffirmation of our dignity and love! We exist. We will not stay in the shadows, and we deserve respect!” de Sousa said.

We can’t help but love these storybook romances. Here’s hoping for a lifetime of happiness and success for this beautiful couple.
