Posted on 08/29/2012 2:18:43 PM PDT by NYer
In Brazil, the BBC reports:
A notary in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo has sparked controversy by accepting a civil union between three people.
Public Notary Claudia do Nascimento Domingues has said the man and two women should be entitled to family rights. She says there is nothing in law to prevent such an arrangement.
But the move has angered some religious groups, while one lawyer described it as “absurd and totally illegal”.
The three individuals, who have declined to speak to the press, have lived in Rio de Janeiro together for three years and share bills and other expenses. Ms Domingues says they have already opened a joint bank account, which is also not prohibited by any law.
Oh, well if they’ve opened a bank account then what’s the problem?
And what, pray, was the justification for the move by the notary representing the trio?
Ms Domingues, who is based in the Sao Paulo city of Tupa, said the move reflected the fact that the idea of a “family” had changed. “We are only recognising what has always existed. We are not inventing anything. For better or worse, it doesn’t matter, but what we considered a family before isn’t necessarily what we would consider a family today.”
Don’t worry, Winston. We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
Next it will be humans and animals. The Father of Lies has almost completed his work related to marriage.
Then why not four...or five ....or six......or Fido?.......
Gee, who could have seen this coming?
Indeed - if there isn’t THE definition, there is no definition, because, once the absolute is rejected, no opinion can be better than any other opinion.
I`ll bet one of them works for the gummint,,,,,,,,,,the other 2 get insured.............someone else pays the premiums.......
OK, i’ll be the one. I’ll sign up for the two women, one man thing. I’m good with it.
Three would be a problem, as they would gang up on one. I’m not so sure my wife wouldn’t go along with the one to cook and do housework, and take over some overflow of other things.
This just keeps getting weirder and weirder....
A tri-lateral marriage is just the beginning.
The islamists will love this.........
Two women under one roof won’t work well for long.......
“Gee, who could have seen this coming?”
Yep...when we brought it up in defense of marriage the response was, “that’s ridiculous scare tactics!” With 120 million birthed people to the credit of assorted lefties, you’d think people would be on to the fact that socialists will do anything - the ends justifying the means, of course - to bring utopia to us all.
Yes...this is the logical next step. As someone else mentioned, after this comes people and animals. Not too hard to see the decadence spiraling into other areas than marriage.
We already kill babies in the womb...and have a President who supports killing babies that survived late term abortions.
Please be patient. It’ll get here soon enough.
Camel?....heavens no.....maybe a sheep..........
Coming soon to an 0bama-nation near you
I see a camel bigot! ;-)
They drool on the pillow.........not that i would have any first hand knowledge of it, mind you.......
One did not need to be a prophet to see this coming. First, Venezuela, next a neighborhood near you.
Nice camels swallow.......
Imagine the Brazilian divorce court potential where there is partner A, B, C.
A sues to divorce B and C. B sues to divorce A and C, and C sues to divorce A and B. Maybe they live in a rental shack and just own one Brazilian cow between them.
How would King Solomon resolve the issue vs the Brazilian Courts, and would the Brazilian Court honor historic law precedent in place of current Brazilian law?
Maybe the Brazilians should reconsider.
Sounds like a bull market for lawyers.
We could ship our excess to Brasil, but I doubt they’re smart enough to learn Portugese....
Or imagine the budget fights, when you are one third of the household and thus can be out-voted by the other two. You don’t even get an equal say, because you’re outnumbered.
The heteros have even more destructively "redefined" sex itself: obliterating its natural connection to procreation via drugs, devices and surgery. This is every bit as radical as obliterating one's natural gender by drugs, devices and surgery.
Once a society has accepted divorce and contraception, there isn't much "definition of marriage" left: it's been pretty thoroughly smashed. The gays, trannies and the poly's are just scavengers sifting through the rubble and picking out the garbled fragments they fancy.
