I saw it on TV, but you can read all about it HERE.

I was just wondering if this is where we are headed? Now anyone can marry anyone or anything??? What about several people getting married to each other?

I like what the lead singer of The Texas Jew Boys said (who is now running for Governor of Texas): "I think gays ought to be able to marry. Why shouldn't they have the right to be as miserable as the rest of us?"

Yeah, I saw this on the Tonight Show (with Jay Leno)

I don't know about gay marriage (that's another topic) but getting married to animals that is WRONG! and shouldn't be allowed!

The marriage isn't legal, and her love for it isn't romantic.

It was more a gesture of love. A little weird, but hardly perverse.

....never thought that inter-species dating would be taken to the next level.....

Yeah, people shouldn't be able to get married to a different species...

I understand that is your opinion, and without stating my opinion, let me ask you a question:

Says who??? Who is setting the standard here? Who is making these decisions? Why not? And what about my question of multiple people getting married? Is that next?

I think she's insane. I think you should marry for love, and to spend the rest of your life with that person. Of course, the dolphin isn't a person, so I guess all the usual rules don't apply.

As for the question of multiple people getting married, well...I don't like that idea; I don't want another woman being intimate with my husband. Although, an alien species did that on Star Trek: Enterprise: The doctor had three wives, and each wife had two other husbands. And the swingers lifestyle is becoming more and more popular these days. So, maybe that is the next step. Lovely :thumbsup: .

Well, considering a major part of marriage is a partnership (including financial responsibilities and the idea of raising children), shouldn't it be required that if one spouse were to pass away, the other would be able to at least handle the responsibilities the deceased left behind? If you are "married" to a dolphin, and have a few mortgages and haven't made a will, how would the finances be taken care of, or the owner's possessions be distributed to the families?

I think that if you are going to marry someone, they need to be able to understand what's going on in the marriage, what it involves, and how to deal with issues regarding the complexities of the responsibilities.

Besides, isn't beastiality (sexual acts involving humans and animals) illegal in most states........ ?

I think it should be illegal because they can't support a family and they can't help with economic problems. They also can't do things together like normal families would be able to do.

Hmmmm....Marrying a sea creature?

Sounds a bit fishy to me.

Marriage. It can mean so many things.

It can be a religious union.

It can be a legal contract.

It can be a an emotional commitment.

It can be a sexual commitment.

It can be an economic union.

It can be a public declaration.

It can also be a living hell:)

I wonder which of these would be encompassed by a marriage to a dolphin. It seems reasonable to assume that in this particular union the dolphin is the smarter of the two participants.


Regards


constantine.

The fact that this woman married a dolphin. (Which of course can not be considered a legal union)
By any stretch of the imagination.
Is outrageous, and deplorable!

I do believe that the womans state of mind is to be questioned.
She must be a irrational lunatic!

This world is going to :thumbsup:, in a hand basket.

Just my 2 cents.

What about several people getting married to each other?


This already happens. It is called polygamy.
Information The Rick A. Ross Institute has
gathered about Polygamist Groups.
http://www.rickross.com/groups/polygamy.html

Utah cracks down on multiple marriages to protect underage brides:
http://www.rickross.com/reference/polygamy/polygamy147.html

A bunch of freaks hiding behind their religious beliefs. IMHO

Does that mean that you shouldn't be allowed to marry unless you can help with economic problems and do things like "normal" families?
Just curious because I know a lot of humans that fit neatly into that description.

Do none of you people have a sense of humour? A more self righteous lot I have not seen. Some silly woman gets a bit of publicity by putting on a sham wedding ceremony and you lot are outraged and disgusted.

You people are the joke to me.

Grow up and get life in perspective.

Your insults are uncalled for. And border on inflammatory. Lets keep this civil, shall we?

Put life in perspective?
For God's sake that is the crux of this of this story. This woman apparently does not have any normal perspective on life.
She is unstable and amoral!
She is not just some silly twit, having a bit of fun.
Oh well, she is a millionaire so therefore eccentric. Had she be a poor person, she would of been carted off and locked away.


Don't you get it? The door is now open. And a precendent has now been set. No matter how absurd it is.
What now will there be freaks out there that want to marry their sheep, or dogs????
