Of all the things this piece of pond scum has been accused of doing or lying about this is not one I care about other than it seems it was an illegal marriage to allow an end run around immigration laws. As for family groupings and relationships that are adult and consensual in my opinion it is not one’s business except the people involved. Mind your own business is the way I look at it. If multiple people want to be in a consensual relationship with each other why should anyone else care. I don’t. Why should the government be involved in regulating how many people can be in love or which adults can have consensual sex? And absolutely no religion has a say in how non-members arrange their relationships or sexual encounters. Hugs
The Daily Beast reports:
Two years into his mysterious marriage to a woman—and five years before they divorced—George Santos invited friends to celebrate his engagement to a man, The Daily Beast has learned. “Good evening everyone! As you all may already know Pedro and I have decided to join our toothbrushes! Lol and a very few friends have been selected to share this special moment with us!” Santos wrote in a 2014 Facebook “engagement dinner” invitation.
The invitation was shared with The Daily Beast by Santos’ old roommate, Greg Morey-Parker, and the boyfriend, Pedro Vilarva, confirmed that the future congressman planned the celebration. Vilarva told The Daily Beast the engagement party “never happened” because he rejected Santos’ proposals. “He asked me 3x but I didn’t accept it,” Vilarva wrote in a text. “There was never a party [or] anything in regards to it.”

Same-sex marriage became legal in New York state in July 2011. Santos’ divorce was finalized in 2020 two weeks before he filed paperwork to run for the US House.
According to Santos’ former roommate, Santos told him he could make money by marrying a Brazilian woman so that she could obtain US citizenship.
A man who was 18 years old when he began dating and then moved in with George Santos—while the future congressman was married to a woman—says he was lied to, too.
“He used to say he would get money from Citigroup, he was an investor,” Pedro Vilarva told The New York Times of his 2014 romance with Santos, who was then 26. “One day it’s one thing, one day it’s another thing. He never ever actually went to work.”
Vilarva said Santos once gave him tickets to Hawaii that did not exist—and then he found out he was wanted on theft charges in Brazil.
“I woke up in the morning, and I packed my stuff all in trash bags, and I called my father and I left,” he said.
