A report that I independently shot, produced and packaged for the French international news channel France 24.
When France became the 14th country in the world to legalise gay marriage earlier this year, it was trumpeted by many as a key moment for equality. But some couples are discovering they can't get married because of a legal loophole. Bilateral agreements mean some foreigners with French partners fall under the marriage laws of their home countries, which don’t recognise gay marriage.
An extended radio and online version of the report is available here: http://www.english.rfi.fr/france/20131008-french-legal-loophole-bars-certain-gay-couples-marriage
