And, this beautiful homosexual wedding can actually make us learn some great life lessons. So, take a look at a few of them, and enjoy the beautiful journey of your relationship with your sweetheart.

Be yourself

Coming out of the closet is not an easy task for anybody. Shannon and Seema took the leap of faith and revealed about their relationship to the world. So, follow their suit and accept your relationship (be it straight or a homosexual one) in front of everyone. Do not let the society’s norms stop you from being what you are. You have the freedom to do what you want in your life. Do not let the world dictate the terms of your life.

Love conquers all

Homosexuality is a taboo in Indian society. For many, it is a biological disorder, while a few consider it as last birth’s karma. But, Seema and Shannon’s wedding proved it all wrong. For them love knows no boundaries, quite literally. They proved the world that everything comes second to love.

Your parents want you to be happy

Your parents may yell at you, may disagree with your views and constantly fight with you over mundane issues, but at the end of the day, they want you to be happy. Both Shannon and Seema’s parents may have had problems accepting their choice, but in the end they wholeheartedly accepted their daughters’ wishes and made their wedding possible.

Let your hair down
