Sigurdardottir, 67, married writer Jonina Leosdottir on Sunday, the day a new law took effect defining marriage as a union between two consenting adults regardless of sex, reports MSNBC.

The two had had a civil union for years and changed this into a marriage under the new law, which was approved by parliament earlier this month.
