Found this at Memeorandum right now:
First came traditional marriage. Then, gay marriage. Now, there’s a movement combining both—simultaneously. Abby Ellin visits the next frontier of nuptials: the “triad.”
Moral arguments aside, I can not for the life of me, begin to imagine why anyone would want to make a lifetime commitment to TWO, not one, simultaneous spouses. Images of endless whiiiiiny arguments at the dinning table come to mind.
Look, if everybody involved is
a. twenty-one years or older
b. acting of their own free will and not coerced
c. there is no violence
d. making sure their financial assets are protected
e. there are no children involved
and you want to indulge in whatever perversion floats your boat, that’s your decision.
Just don’t call it marriage.
