MANORVILLE - A mentally disabled couple that's set to tie the knot in a few days has filed a lawsuit against two group homes for preventing them from living together as a married couple.
Paul Forziano and Hava Samuels, who currently live in separate group homes in Manorville, plan on getting married on April 7 at Eastwind in Wading River.
The couple and their families have filed a federal lawsuit against New York state and the two nonprofit agencies that run their respective group homes.
The homes have each stated that it's against their policies to house married couples together.
A conference on the matter has been scheduled for Wednesday.
