What's love got to do with it?
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.
Yahoo reports that after the story was printed, the men decided to call off the union. Pinn did say, ""We'll probably be best friends for another 20 years, but we don't have to get married. Why would you ruin a good friendship and get married."
Pinn is wrong about that but right about something else - the government has not thought out all the implications of this change in God's plan for marriage. Once marriage is no longer defined as men/women, it can be men/anything and women/anything. Who knows how far unregenerate individuals can go? And we will just watch it happen!
