Patricia, who is pregnant, and Obelson, who got married in a joint ceremony with another pregnant couple who they did not know, to share the costs of the ceremony, pose for a photo outside the church where they got married in Baie de Henne, Nord Ouest Department, Haiti, October 27, 2018. Obelson, who works as a motorcycle driver, met Patricia while working. When she fell pregnant, her parents insisted that they get married. Protestant churchgoing communities in Haiti favour marriage, especially if a couple is expecting a child with some religious schools only accepting pupils if their parents can provide a marriage certificate.

A decorative carving of a lion and a child stands in the main entrance hallway next to the staircase of Villa Guardamangia, a former residence of Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, in Pieta, Malta, June 23, 2020. The then-Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip were in the first years of their marriage at the time and moved to Malta when Prince Philip was based there in command of a Royal Navy frigate. The Maltese government agency Heritage Malta acquired the Villa Guardamangia for some five million euros and hopes not just to restore the villa to the way it looked several decades ago, but also to turn it into a museum of Malta's history as a British colony until independence in 1964, and the links with the British royal family.

We have a child through artificial insemination, but only one of us can be registered to be the mother, while the other without a blood connection has no way to exercise the legal duty of being a parent. This is so unfair. The baby has the love of two mothers. It does not matter how a family is formed as long as there is love.

The Wider Image: Aajibaichi Shaala - no ordinary school
Aajibaichi Shaala is not your ordinary school in India. The students at "grandmothers' school" in the village of Fangane are elderly women who are getting the chance to learn to read. India's literacy rate grew to 74 percent in the decade to 2011, according to the latest census, but female literacy continued to lag the rate for males by a wide margin. About 65 percent of women were found to be literate, compared with 82 percent of men, according to the 2011 report. Education experts and researchers have cited outdated attitudes toward women, including a preference for male children over females, and child marriages as main reasons for the lower female literacy rate. At Aajibaichi, afternoon classes in the one-room school are held six days a week for two hours. The lessons are timed so the women can finish their chores, or their work in the fields, before attending class. REUTERS/Danish Siddiqui SEARCH "AAJIBAICHI" FOR THIS STORY.

Sun and her 53-year-old husband Li Guoquan's son, Li Chao, was born in 1987 and died from a car accident in 2013. Sun terminated another pregnancy and couldn't think of having a second child because of the strict application of the one-child policy. After the loss of their son, Sun has suffered from conditions including depression, high blood pressure and diabetes. They live on Sun's pension and Li's monthly salary; it is not enough to cover their medical bills so they rely on the savings they had put aside for their son's marriage.

Joseph Vitale (L) and his husband Robert Talmas (R) walk with their adopted son Cooper near their New York City apartment March 9, 2015. The couple, who are legally married in New York State, sued the state of Ohio after the state refused to name both men on their son's birth certificate after legally adopting Cooper in Ohio. Their case is part of a consolidated lawsuit spanning four states that is heading to the United States Supreme Court in April in a case many say could make same-sex marriage legal in all of the United States.

Luis Delgado (R) holds son Marco as husband Antonio Ferndandez holds their daughter Olivia, at their home in Cancun February 24, 2015. The gay married couple from Spain who used a Mexican surrogate are unable to return to Spain with their new-born twins as they are unable to secure passports for their babies. The surrogate gave birth to the twins in Tabasco on January 6 but Mexico has refused to give Delgado and Fernandez passports to take the twins home. According to El Pais newspaper, the couple cannot be granted passports due to a conflict of interest. The state of Tabasco recognizes surrogate births but the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not. It is illegal for couples to have babies via surrogates in Spain but if the country where the baby was born officially confirms the couple are the biological parents, then Spain will be able to register them. If not, the mother must appear in the paperwork, El Pais reported. REUTERS/Victor Ruiz Garcia (MEXICO - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY IMMIGRATION)
