First Trio Married in the Netherlands

And now every lunatic will turn to this as vindication for their slippery-slope argument of "gay marriage leads to polygamy".

Never explaining, of course, why either of them is intrinsically wrong.

But never mind that. It seems that this is not actually a marriage, nor even a civil union. Frans has more:
This is not an official marriage or an official civil union (there is a slight difference, but I won't bore you with the details). This is just a "samenlevingscontract" which "von" correctly translates as "cohabitation contract". It has no official standing. Trust me - I know.

Given that Frans has an e-mail address with a .nl suffix, I suppose he probably does know, at that.
