Pope Francis married 20 couples from different social backgrounds during a ceremony at St Peter’s basilica in Vatican City, on September 14, 2014

 

Vatican City (AFP) – A single mother, people who have been married before and couples who have been living together “in sin” were married by Pope Francis in a taboo-challenging ceremony at the Vatican on Sunday.

 

In another signal of the openness of his papacy, Francis asked to marry 40 people from different social backgrounds who would be a realistic sample of modern couples.

 

Popes very rarely perform marriages — the last one was in 2000.

 

Marriage “is not an easy road, it’s sometimes a contentious trip, but that’s life”, the pope told the couples, both young and old, as their families gathered for the solemn two-hour ceremony.
