Damian Bernath and Jorge Salazar "married on Wednesday at a Civil Registry office, and decided to do it completely privately," said Maria Rachid, who leads the Argentine Federation of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals and Transgendered.

In December, two Argentine men, Alex Freyre and Jose Maria Bello, became the first homosexuals to legally marry in all of heavily Roman Catholic Latin America, after the governor of southernmost Tierra del Fuego province allowed them to wed in the provincial capital, Ushuaia.

Until now, no Latin American country has formally recognized gay marriages, although Mexico City's legislature has approved them. In Argentina, local authorities have approved the legal proceedings in these two cases ahead of possible legislative action.
