Edith Windsor, 87, a pioneer in the gay rights movement, was married September 26 at City Hall in New York to Judith Kasen, 51, a vice president at Wells Fargo Advisors, according to the New York Times.

The city clerk was Michael McSweeney; the officiant was Angel Lopez.

This is Windsor’s third marriage. Shortly after graduating from Temple University, she married Saul Windsor; however, less than a year later, they were divorced. In 2007, Windsor and Thea Spyer, her longtime partner who had been sick with multiple sclerosis, were married in Toronto, where gay marriage was legal.

Two years later, Spyer died from complications related to her heart condition.

Windsor met her new wife Kasen at a gay rights event at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in the West Village, although the couple did not start dating until some time after.

According to the Times, Windsor said that the two are contemplating a four-year move to Barcelona, Spain, in 2017 should Donald Trump become president.
