Recently a young American woman announced her intention to marry her father. As we were digesting this curiosity there appeared on AOL News a story entitled “My Strange Addiction: Florida Woman marries a carnival ride,” a brief narrative worth reading (there is a video interview). That marriage was in fact solemnized by an official ceremony. In a matter of months the United States Supreme Court will rule on the issue of same sex marriage. An affirmation of that practice under the Constitution will of course bring cases before that tribunal from folks seeking equal treatment for those wishing to marry their fathers and people in deep and meaningful relationships with carnival rides and other imposing objects. So get ready, because that’s where we’re headed.
