Danielle and Ingrid left behind and their lives and their countries in search of a future better and made their way to Europe through Ceuta. Arrested for illegal entry in Spain, two African women were interned on 21 July 2010, at the center of temporary stay of immigrants (CETI). There they met and fell in love. And they suffered harassment from other immigrants because of their homosexual orientation. Two years later they will celebrate the first marriage of two undocumented sub-Saharan migrant women.

His dream has been to marry in Ceuta, and there, they will travel from Getafe (Madrid), where they currently reside. Women - one from Cameroon and one from the Republic of Guinea - planned travel to the autonomous city to carry out this union, which will mean a new fact to be of people who lack any type of documents to prove their identity.

Most importantly, the authorization of a judge of Ceuta, have to hold the link in Ceuta city in the last two weeks of April, reported sources of the CETI. Now they need to solve some more permissions.

Ingrid Rosselyne, the Republic of Guinea, and Danielle Nicole, born in Cameroon, both aged 21, requested international protection on August 9, 2010, when they were about 19 days since joining in the Centre, after entering illegally from Morocco.

Following the procedures in the Civil Registry, this Friday the Manager of the Office of the Registrar of Ceuta has reported that the judge in charge of the registry has authorized the contraction of civil marriage.
