Poor Ricky Martin has quite the dilemma. While planning his marriage to partner Jwan Yosef, the “She Bangs” singer has come up against a very unexpected barrier: President Trump‘s evil travel ban. You see, while his hunky husband-to-be Jwan was raised in Sweden, he was actually born in Syria. And many of his family still live there. And Syria, of course, is one of the demonized countries on Trump’s travel ban. Which means they probably wouldn’t be able to attend. And what good is having a big wedding if half the wedding party is labeled potential terrorists and barred from the festivities?
“We want to do it right,” Ricky told Ocean Drive magazine. “hopefully next spring. We’ll do the three-day event as I call it.”
“We still don’t know where we will do it, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico or in Sweden, where my fiancé is from, or in Spain, where I am also from.”
The happy couple could be prevented from marrying in the place they call home, America, due to President Trump’s draconian order banning people from the country entering the US. “We also have to deal with the fact that most of my fiancé’s family is from Syria, so maybe they won’t be able to come into this country.”
“So we might consider doing it in Stockholm or in Spain. We don’t know yet, but it’s going to be a great event.”
Their family life, aside from Trump’s meddling, is an ideal image of the modern family.
“People will be talking about it,” Rick opened up. “We’re a modern family, and I think people need to see, and I want to normalise the beauty of our family. That’s why I’m making it public and I am going to share my wedding with the world.”
Well, wherever it ends up being, I’m sure it will be lovely.
