Two of the three American hikers jailed in Iran after allegedly crossing  the Iraq-Iran border in 2009 were united in marriage yesterday (Saturday) in a private ceremony in California, according to MSNBC.

The wedding of Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd  wraps up an engagement that began when Bauer tied a ring of thread around her finger while they were in prison two years ago.  "Now that this day has come, all I can do is close my eyes and fill with gratitude, for our freedom, for the love of so many generous people around the world, and for the very soil under my feet," Shourd said in the statement that was posted on the 'Free the Hikers' page on Facebook.

And they lived happily ever after!
