To an untrained eye, the attractive couple Allison Allure and Exy Davis may look like identical twins or even a lesbian couple. Shockingly, they are a heterogenous couple that got married in Russia back in August, a country where gay and lesbian unions are forbidden.
Allure and Davis, both wore matching bridal dresses to their wedding, making them seem more like two young women.
The husband, Dmitry Kozhukhov, 23, who identifies as 'androgyne' - someone who does not strictly fit to either male or female gender - is attracted to women and more comfortable as a woman, reported Metro.
Kozhukhov now lives as Exy Davis; "After all, girls are the fairer sex. They are beautiful. So if a guy looks like a girl – it's wonderful," she says.
19-year-old Allison Allure (according to Facebook) and Exy Davis got married despite official disapproval and outrage from a registry office.
"In May, we filled in the application in the registry office, and our appearance did not cause any questions at all, which surprised us... But just a couple of weeks before the wedding they started to call us. When they could not reach us, they called my mother," the couple revealed to Daily Mail.
When Davis tried to reach the marriage registry, she was threatened with administrative punishment, saying their marriage is an "insult to the feelings of believers".
However, they ultimately received the licence despite being dressed like a woman, as there are no rules against heterogenous couples marrying just because they are both wearing white bridal dresses.
Their marriage would help send a powerful message and inspire other Russian couples involved in non-conventional relationships, they hope.
"We are not alone in having such problems. I have written to couples who are planning similar marriages and are afraid of failures with registration. Be aware – you cannot be refused," said Davis.
