As Dr. Eowyn has noted before, there is a slippery slope of legalizing homosexual same-sex marriage. Once that barn door was opened, there is now agitation to legalize and normalize polygamy, bestiality, pedophilia and pederasty. See the stories here, here, and here.
Now another country has accepted polygamy because after all, #loveislove, or something like that.
From The Telegraph: Three gay men say they have gained legal recognition as the first “polyamorous family” in Colombia, where same-sex marriages were legalised last year.
“We wanted to validate our household… and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” said one of the men, actor Victor Hugo Prada, in a video published by Colombian media on Monday.
He said he and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights.
“This establishes us as a family, a polyamorous family. It is the first time in Colombia that has been done.”
Lawyer and gay rights activist German Rincon Perfetti said there are many three-person unions in Colombia but this was the first one to be legally recognised. “It is a recognition that other types of family exist,” he told AFP.
A ruling by the constitutional court in April 2016 made Colombia the fourth South American country to definitively legalise same-sex marriage, after Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
