"Civil Union": One Man, Two Women

[This timely article is from sicsempertyrannis.blogspot.com. Could this be around the corner for the United States?]

Netherlands: Three People Wed One Another

Once again, the Dutch remain on the forefront of the movement to destroy the institution of marriage. The direction we all predicted gay marriage would inevitably lead manifested itself in the Nethlerlands where 3 people wed one another, one man and two women. They are trying to parade it as something other than polygamy, as if that's a dirty word or something, and if they call it something different, it will be different.

Everyone knows that if gay marriage can be justified, anything can be justified...including the absence of all moral inhibitions. It's sad to see a nation [Holland] that served as a haven to the Pilgrims at a time when religious liberty was not widespread in Europe, that produced the powerful legacy of William the Silent and Abraham Kuyper become the leader in the legalization and regulation of prostitution, the legalization of drugs, the legalization of gay marriage, euthanasia, and now this.


First Trio "Married" in The Netherlands

From the desk of Paul Belien on Tue, September 27, 2005
The Brussels Journal

The Netherlands and Belgium were the first countries to give full marriage rights to homosexuals. In the United States some politicians propose “civil unions� that give homosexual couples the full benefits and responsibilities of marriage. These civil unions differ from marriage only in name.

Meanwhile in the Netherlands polygamy has been legalised in all but name. Last Friday the first civil union of three partners was registered. Victor de Bruijn (46) from Roosendaal “married� both Bianca (31) and Mirjam (35) in a ceremony before a notary who duly registered their civil union.

“I love both Bianca and Mirjam, so I am marrying them both,� Victor said. He had previously been married to Bianca. Two and a half years ago they met Mirjam Geven through an internet chatbox. Eight weeks later Mirjam deserted her husband and came to live with Victor and Bianca. After Mirjam’s divorce the threesome decided to marry.

Victor: “A marriage between three persons is not possible in the Netherlands, but a civil union is. We went to the notary in our marriage costume and exchanged rings. We consider this to be just an ordinary marriage.�

Asked by journalists to tell the secret of their peculiar relationship, Victor explained that there is no jealousy between them. “But this is because Mirjam and Bianca are bisexual. I think that with two heterosexual women it would be more difficult.� Victor stressed, however, that he is “a one hundred per cent heterosexual� and that a fourth person will not be allowed into the “marriage.� They want to take their marriage obligations seriously: “to be honest and open with each other and not philander.�

[Yes, it looks like ol' Victor is plugging two Dutch dykes!]

Here are a couple of questions for your readers to ponder:

Why do you need to go to the State and get their permission (in the form of a marriage license) to marry another individual?
Do we not have the liberty to decide whom we share our lives with?
Why do we need permission from anyone other than those parties to the marriage?
Why do we need a license?
Why should it be anyone else's business what consenting adults do?

That was priceless!

Bigamy is the natural progression of redefining marriage; how long before marriage loses all meaning?

I think marriage has already lost much of its meaning...the divorce rate is 50% in the states...unwed couples abound, as do their bastard children, and Wife Swap is a reality TV show on ABC.
