Miss Argentina and Miss Puerto Rico reveal that they’re married, and the results are pretty freaking beautiful!
You remember when Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello tweeted back in October of 2015, asking if the U.S. would ever have the courage to offer Puerto Rico statehood in the form of a Puerto Rican state?
You also remember when Puerto Rico Attorney General Wanda E. Castro went to the U.S. to try and get the federal government’s blessing to file a formal statehood lawsuit in what would be the island’s first step towards statehood that didn’t go over like a lead balloon with the Obama administration.
This video features two couples, a guy from Puerto Rico and a woman from Virginia who have been married since 2004, and they both are pretty happy as a result. And we’ve got to say, one of these couple looks just a lot happier than the other. But that’s what you get when you choose love and marriage.
The video shows an interview they did on Friday with Puerto Rico’s NBC affiliate, WAPA-TV, in which they revealed the secret wedding.
When you put these two Puerto Rican and U.S. couples together, it’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?
The couple is “happily married” says Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello, while Eileen Castro, who also has been married since 2004 and is Puerto Rico’s top attorney general, says the marriage of Puerto Rico’s first lady, Marcelino Serrano, is a “tribute” to her native island.
This video is pretty much proof positive.
You see, Puerto Rico actually has a state, and that state is called the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
The island of Puerto Rico has already earned the right to secede from the United States, if President Donald Trump can’t get the job done to ensure that Puerto Rico does not ever get to become a state.
Puerto Rico was a territory of the U.S. with its own governor and, in a sense, its own government until 1941, when American rule ceased, but Puerto Rico stayed as a territory because its constitution gave the United States the right to tax, regulate and protect Puerto Rico, and many U.S. colonies that were under the jurisdiction of the United States.
