MugzyBrown: dwrash: I'm of the mind that ALL legal benefits need to be removed from being married, so the only thing about it is a pledge to one another.

I agree, the best way to solve the 'marriage issue' is for the government to get out of the marriage business.  They're the one causing the problem.

There's no law that says 2 people can't get together, have a ceremony, and call themselves married, but it's the government treating different people with different rights is the rub.

Solution, no more government-sponsored marriages.

Girlfriending your adoption is still cool right?


He is a sick and twisted fark.  To do that to his wife/her mother is evil

I've always been pretty sure that's precisely why he adopted her in the first place.


Not to defend him, but he didn't, Mia farrow did. and Allen, her partner at the time, was never married to her

Cheron: Had a coworker who rented a few rooms in his house to another family.  Zoning informed him that his house was single family so he adopted his 35 year old boarder.  He even brought them to company picnics


Didn't some gays used to do this to establish legal rights they couldn't otherwise get? Or was that just in some cheesy movie I saw?

The picture is Ted Nugent, who legally adopted his underage girlfriend so he could have her live with him without legal repercussions.

And pray tell, how long was he with her (i.e. BANGING her) before he approached her parents about becoming her legal guardian?

Fark_Guy_Rob: People have been against inter-racial marriage.
People have been against gay marriage.
People have been against polygamous marriage.
And people have been against incestuous marriage.

And it's all just close-minded people forcing their viewpoints, their lifestyle on others.

Consenting adults should be afforded the same rights as everyone else.  Anything less is wrong.


Well, it depends on what you mean by "consenting" -- in incestuous relationships, there can be a power dynamic where one person has a more dominant position in the family over the other, for example a parent or uncle/aunt; and it could be much harder to leave your family than an abusive lover/spouse.  Therefore it could easily be one person forcing the other into a marriage.  Also, incest babies.

As for polygamy -- here are my main arguments against: 1) most polygamistic traditions have been structured to empower men over women, and also enable sexual abuse of children / teenagers; 2) it can lead to rich men (the Donald Trumps / Hugh Hefners of the world) hoarding women, which could mean much fewer women to pair up with young, poor men, which in turn leads to social instability.  Theoretically, it doesn't have to be -- it would be interesting if the world were full of polygamist clans like in Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress -- but if you're a cynic like me then it could easily be an institution that's going to be exploited by those with the most means to do so.

After going through a bitter divorce.. I am of the realization that at any time in a marriage, one partner can basically turn the other into an ATM without any recourse... basically, it legalizes one partner to be a parasite if they so chose.

Then end alimony instead :)

It's more than just alimony.  It's a child support issue also.

I had no issue supporting my kids, other than the fact that I also had to deal with servicing payments on 37k worth of debt she ran up on credit cards... when you make the money, they come after you and leave her alone.

Lets just say I had to disconnect the cable, stay at home a lot and read books, while it had almost no impact on my ex who walked out and took the kids.

And 8 months later the kids show up on my doorstep because they are tired of her nonsense... so I sued my ex for support and I got nothing.

The only good thing about the 37k debt is I used it as a bargaining chip to force her to either take it all and go into bankrupcy or let me eat it and never pay alimony ever again... and it worked.

Dunno, I think she was 16 or 17 when they met, she was definitely 17 when they decided to adopt because she was too young to get married to him. Google "Pele Massa" if you really want to know more

I answered that in the post just before that.  That is Wang Dang with Sweet Poontang.

I'm really glad the judge made the common-sense (literally, not in the oft-abused sense) in this case. I raged so hard when I heard he was adopting his girlfriend to protect his assets.

dwrash: If same sex marriage is made legal, what is to stop a father marrying his son to make sure 100% of his fortune is passed on with no inheritance taxes... just like husband to wife.


Existing marriage laws which forbid marriages of close relatives.
 
2013-03-28 03:44:56 PM

Fark_Guy_Rob: What happened to respecting people's beliefs?

Who is the government to decide who can/can't be adopted by.  Or who you can/can't marry?  This is as backwards as not allowing blacks to vote or not allowing gays to marry.


Even if Gay marriage become legal in all 50, the INS will still proscute you for fraud if you get married just to get somone a green card.  Personally I'd think about charging him under the incest statutes just for good measure

And you don't think that law will be challenged soon?.. and proved unconstitutional?

This entire question is about freedom to marry who we chose, regardless of gender... if the court allows same sex marriage, the laws about incest will follow the same route, because the fundamental question is the same.

So marrying someone of your own gender is fundamentally the same as marrying a close relative? Interesting how things work in your world. Is the sky there purple too?

The fundamental question is that you should be able to marry whomever you want, regardless of gender...

Is it not?

It's not the responsibility of womenkind to sacrifice their own interests in order to maintain social stability. The poor men don't have a right to a bride. There's many women out there that would prefer to get a successful rich guy rather than marry some ordinary guy working as a middle manager or in IT even if it means sharing the wealthy guy with a couple other women.

This.  She was 22 when their relationship got sexy.  They weren't related biologically or legally.  Nobody else's business.

Fark_Guy_Rob: Which is arbitrarily discriminatory.


It's discriminatory, like all decisions. It's not arbitrary. You might disagree with the reasoning, but it exists and is not fundamentally illogical.

My parents are given rights that extend well beyond me reaching the age of majority.

Not really. Almost all of the rights parents have stem from the removal of those same rights from their children, so once someone reaches the age of majority there are basically no "parental rights" because they all revert to the child.

There are a few things like probate law that come into play should you cease to be a legal person, but even they only create default assumptions for things like medical proxy and inheritance, and they don't recognize parents or children differently than other family members. In those cases adoption is not necessary to redirect decision making; explicit statements of intent (like a will or health care power of attorney) override those assumptions much more easily. And the purpose of those assumptions is itself an effort to take advantage of the personal knowledge and insight family members might have, rather than relying on a court-appointed advocate with no knowledge of the original party; it's not a set of extra rights granted to family members, it's the court's effort to preserve the rights and will of the original party.
 
2013-03-29 10:45:34 AM

douchebag/hater: ...
Actually adults can't be adopted because they are viewed as being at or above the age of majority.


Not sure what country you live in but adult adoption in perfectly legal in America:

Maybe they ruled on his case about the adoption late or whatever but dude is doing 16 years in prison and paid the victims family $46 million dollars.
