Bill Dalrymple, 56, and best friend Bryan Pinn, 65, have decided to take the plunge and try out the new same-sex marriage legislation with a twist -- they're straight men.
"I think it's a hoot," Pinn said.
The proposal came last Monday on the patio of a Toronto bar amid shock and laughter from their friends. But the two -- both of whom were previously married and both of whom are still looking for a good woman to love -- insist that after the humour subsided, a real issue lies at the heart of it all.
"There are significant tax implications that we don't think the government has thought through," Pinn said.
Dalrymple has been to see a lawyer already and there are no laws in marriage that define sexual preference.
Yes! I am so glad that some did this and it appears that no one else has thought about doing it until now (?!?).
But you know what, it gets better:
Predictably, a "warning" from Toronto lawyer Bruce Walker, a gay and lesbian rights activist.
"Generally speaking, marriage should be for love," he said. "People who don't marry for love will find themselves in trouble."
So, yeah, guys can marry guys, only if they love each other. Oh, and that “I love my friend” doesn't count, only that "I want to screw you" kind of love counts.
Ok, ok, ok. Now we need to get siblings to marry each other. I mean who is to say that they can't love each other. Then, a person and a dog... why couldn't they love each other? Heck let's go with a computer and a nerd, that sounds like a good love couple as well.
