Today at the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn portion of the Square Enix Presents program, FFXIV Director Naoki Yoshida announced that players will be able to pledge their eternal love (or friendship!) to anyone regardless of gender or in-game race.
According to Yoshida, there’s no reason to have restrictions on how people should pledge their love or friendship within the in-game world of Eorzea.
There are also plans to add special mounts that couples can ride together.
The Eternal Bonding Ceremony is planned to be released in 2.4 alongside a new class and job.
