From PinkNews:

Eugene Wojciechowski and Pavel Stotsko tied the knot on January 4 in Copenhagen, Denmark, in matching bow-ties. When they returned to Russia, they hoped – but did not expect – that their union would be seen as legal in their home country...

Obviously just an isolated thing at the moment, but what does it hold for the future?

Gay marriage in the US came about kind of in the same way.
We actually got gay marriage laws because of the religious right being uncompromising in their effort to squash it. They brought it to the forefront every chance they could and eventually it made it to the supreme court. That's where the only defense they had was to say " Because the bible says so", every other reason was shot down as bigoted and opinionated without proof by even the conservative judges.
The judges got stuck between a bad place and a really bad place. On one hand, if they approved of the law and said it was discriminatory and against the constitution? Gay people could be married in all parts of the country. But if they had ruled in favor of the anti-gay plaintiffs, they would have opened the door to all kinds of marriages being legal by default, strictly on their religious beliefs. A person could marry as many other people as they wanted and by law anything they wanted.All by just saying it was their religious right.
Laws are complicated things.

They have fled the country due to death threats and the actions of the police.
