MANORVILLE - A mentally disabled couple from Manorville tied the knot today at East Wind Catering Hall in Wading River.

Despite being married, Paul Forziano and Hava Samuels are not permitted to live together.

As News 12 Long Island has reported, the group homes where they currently live refuse to house married couples together.

The couple and their families are taking their case to court.

In the meantime, the couple's attorney says the state is trying to find placement for the couple so they can live as husband and wife.
