Doting Fathers Have The Opportunity To Finally Marry In Minnesota
Two loving fathers celebrate the day they can marry with their two daughters, thanks to opportunity given by the state of Minnesota after legalizing gay marriage. The state first started issuing marriage licenses to gay couples on August 1st of 2013 after voters voted against banning it in November of 2012.
Minnesota became the second state in the Midwest to do this, next to Iowa. During the first month of legalized gay marriage in Minnesota, at least 1,600 gay couples married, which accounted for a third of all marriages during that time period.
The People Of The Arctic Circle
This photo by Aleksandr Romanov captures children playing together outside of the Arctic Circle, where they live in Tazov Peninsula, Russia. Due to the severe climate, not many people live in this area of the world. There are some brave enough to live here still though, despite the cold. Most of those who live in or around the Arctic Circle live in the Russian part of it.
The Arctic Circle is about 10,975 miles long and runs through the Arctic Ocean, North Asia, and parts of Northern America and Greenland. The land of the Arctic Circle is split into 8 parts belonging to Norway, Russia, Finland, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, the US, and Iceland
