Why Canít Three People get Married ? 08/06/2013

By The Christian Institute, UK
A group of polyamorists say they want the same legal status as other relationships, following the group's first national convention in Canada.

Polyamory involves intimate relationships between three or more people at the same time.

Canada redefined marriage in 2005 and saw a major legal case involving polygamy in 2011.

The Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association intervened in the case and now says it wants to see polyamorous relationships treated on the same legal footing as others.

The Association's director, Zoe Duff, said she would like to see "households where our spouses are equal under the law, and moving forward in terms of pensions, and inheritances and property division".

The group defines polyamory as having "more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved".

The group says they "live all gender combinations", and are "queer-friendly".
