Australian Minister Ian Hunter, left and Leith Semmens kiss during a marriage ceremony in the Pabellon de los Artes center in the town of Jun, southern Spain, Wednesday Dec. 19, 2012. Ian Hunter, the social inclusion minister for the state of South Australia, married his longtime partner Wednesday in southern Spain, two months after his country voted down a proposal to enact same sex marriage legislation. Hunter, 52, is believed to be the first sitting member of an Australian legislative body to marry a gay partner. Hunter said he was disappointed that his marriage to artist Leith Semmens won't be legal in Australia but said the two decided they couldn't wait for their country to approve a gay marriage law.
