A gay couple was thrilled when same-sex marriage was legalized in the U.S. over the summer, except their plan to officially tie the knot has hit a rather unusual snag — the pair is technically father and son.

Nino Esposito, 78, is actually Drew Bosee’s, 68, father. The couple decided to “get ahead of the game” three years ago and enter into a father-son adoption relationship to secure the same rights and benefits afforded to straight couples.

“We thought it was never going to come to Pennsylvania in our lifetime,” Bosee said.

Yet their presumed ingenious idea backfired when gay marriage was legalized in June.

An Allegheny County judge refused their petition to dissolve the adoption.

The couple, who have been going strong since 1970, are now ironically stuck as father and son instead of as husband and husband.
