(ABC)   Remember that mentally-handicapped newlywed couple that had to live in separate group homes? Well an offer has been made to let them live together in a group home. Clearly someone realized how retarded this all was   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 28

Dude, way over the line. Comparing these two to congressmen is insulting to people with mental disabilities everywhere.

As someone who has worked in group homes over the years as a volunteer, the RA (Resident Advisors) will see less retarded marital fights than on any reality show with celebs.

Depends on the severity of the condition.  As a rule, people with MR/DD have the usual, full rights of anyone else, minus whatever the courts specifically agree to sign over to parents/guardians/caretakers/etc.  And that can vary wildly, even among the clients of a single group house.

It's funny at first until you remember Darwin's marital history and its results.

(farking retarded)^2

(farking retarded) * (farking retarded)
=
(farking)^2 + 2(farking retarded) + (retarded)^2

This makes me think of a piece of family lore about Crazy Aunt Sarah, who had to go to an institution. She had been mentally ill for awhile, but could look after herself, and then the Huntington's set in. One day at the institution where she lived, she claimed a guy she'd never met as her "husband". The man in question didn't speak or react to anything. But Sarah looked after him and cared for him as if he really was her husband. Over time, he began to recover and to talk, and the family found out that he'd been fine until, as a German-American., he found himself in the American military, waging war against his own relatives, and that plus the trauma of war sent him over the edge. He was grateful to Aunt Sarah and loved her. The institution tried to split them up (something about money, and also some idiot workers thought the arrangement was "indecent"), but Aunt Sarah's family found a way to keep them together and considered the two of them as good as married.

After Aunt Sarah died, her nephew Phil (for the record, my great uncle) would pick this guy up from the institution and bring him to family holidays. Great Uncle Phil was the one who told me the story.

(Sorry for the rambling. It's just... this sort of thing has happened before, and apparently, nobody's learned from it. Argh.)

Wow...that actually bolsters my waning faith in humanity somewhat.  Thanks for sharing.

Apparently, they were deemed able to consent to marriage.  That's a much more complex decision than whether you want sex.

No, marriage would be 2 potato, 1 potato...

While I am happy they can live together, I still do hope they are unable to reproduce, they can't take care of themselves let alone any offspring.

Anyone consider whether the offspring would consent to having two retarded parents?

While I'm happy for them, a federal civil rights lawsuit seemed extreme.
