Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel will marry his partner, Gauthier Destenay, later this week. The couple has been in a civil union since 2010.
Luxembourg became a marriage equality country earlier this year.
Destenay proposed, according to the Prime Minister. He told the Los Angeles Times, “He asked and I said yes.”
They plan a private wedding and Bettel told the newspaper Luxembourger Wort they have no time for a honeymoon.
Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe. The population is less than 550,000 and it is 998 square miles. To compare, Dallas County is 908 square miles with a population of 2.48 million.
The country’s deputy prime minister Etienne Schneider is also gay.
