It originally said that this was the first time a man has married a woman from his own culture.
That has now been corrected.
The man who married a local woman in a matrimonial ceremony in Peru, a native of the Andean region, said he and his family had planned on marrying the woman for many years.
“I never thought about it, I never thought to propose to her, but when I got to know her I was in a very happy mood.
I just want to thank her for being my mother, she is my first wife,” he said.
The couple have a 2-year-old daughter, Anil, and two sons.
