You might think that this is grotesque. I certainly think it is grotesque. But should we be so judgemental about the unorthodox connubial arrangements of Anna and Lucy Decinque, 31-year-old identical twins who are sharing a bed with their 32-year-old electrical mechanic boyfriend Ben Byrne?
The trio have lived together for the last four years in Perth, Western Australia, with the girls mother.
The girls are inseparable, so much so that they have spent A$240,000 on various cosmetic improvements to look even more alike. They imitate each other and share everything. Even their boyfriend.
When Anna and Lucy appeared on the SBS current affairs program Insight last week, they announced that they wanted to become pregnant at the same time, even if one or the other had to use IVF. "[We] just have to be pregnant at the same time," one said. "Yeah, we just want to be the same in everything," the other chimed in.
Relationships with separate boyfriends had always failed, they said, "because we're with each other 24/7, every single day, every minute of our life together". So Ben treats them equally and they form a happy family.
So the question is: if the Australian Marriage Act is amended to allow homosexuals to marry, why cant Anna, Lucy and Ben have their sincere love and tested commitment for each other recognised? It seems outrageously unfair to leave them unhitched and unhappy. After all, unless their polyamorous love is recognised by the majesty of the law, they will always be regarded as a freak show.
To a certain extent, still untested in the courts, they already are a de facto thruple. They have been living in a marriage-like relationship for more than two years, which is the condition for constituting a de facto couple in Western Australia. Ordinarily, a third woman (or man) in such a relationship would enter it later and the law would probably insist that only the original pair possesses the rights arising from a de facto relationship.
But because the Decinque twins have insisted on doing everything together, their relationships with Ben began simultaneously. It seems unfair that only one of them can have access to property, government benefits or care of children in the event of death or a relationship breakdown. Surely authentic equality means giving even this peculiar ménage a trois an opportunity to get married.
The bigwigs of the marriage equality movement in Australia say that they are absolutely -- cross their hearts and hope to die -- opposed to everything poly except Polynesia. But isn't it time that they woke up to the reality of diverse family structures in Australia today? Surley the lived experience of Anna, Lucy and Ben suggests that society needs to move beyond the antiquated dyadic hegemony they are promoting in their campaign for same-sex marriage.
A grotesque prospect? I agree. But that is the inexorable logic of the push for same-sex marriage. If all love is equal, why not polyamory?
A question that the left REFUSES to address.

The hardcore left already supports polyamory. They will dumb down the masses and get them to support it in due time.
There’s a couple in Utah I believe already doing this. They have a reality TV show.
Coming soon to a state near you.
Why not, four...five......I mean is it really that much more sillier than allowing two members of the same sex to marry?
Yup. and “some” fag loving freepers got into a yelling match when I was one of the originals who was totally against fag marriage. They keep moving the goal line and see what happens..
don’t forget the pet great dane
I added the “barf alert”.
"Well, things turned out all right in the end, but you musn't ask how 'cos it's naughty. They're all married and living quite well in a council estate near Dulwich."
be careful what you ask (for)
There are poly groups active in every single state in America. Feel free to Google it and see for yourself.
Just move to Islamostan.
Yes. He said that it was grotesque.
Well, who could have seen that coming?
Are they really identical twins or do they just identify as such?
The reason I ask is why did they need to spend so much money on surgery to look alike?
