An Israeli couple was married in a civil union for the first time.

The wedding Tuesday follows the passage last year of a civil union law, which allows couples in which both partners are not Jewish to have a civil marriage.

Twenty-five Israeli couples have already met the criteria, The Jerusalem Post reported, and all have been questioned by local religious authorities to make sure they are not Jewish.
