Here Come the Brides

The Weekly Standard: "ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2005, the 46-year-old Victor de Bruijn and his 31-year-old wife of eight years, Bianca, presented themselves to a notary public in the small Dutch border town of Roosendaal. And they brought a friend. Dressed in wedding clothes, Victor and Bianca de Bruijn were formally united with a bridally bedecked Mirjam Geven, a recently divorced 35-year-old whom they'd met several years previously through an Internet chatroom. As the notary validated a samenlevingscontract, or 'cohabitation contract,' the three exchanged rings, held a wedding feast, and departed for their honeymoon.

When Mirjam Geven first met Victor and Bianca de Bruijn, she was married. Yet after several meetings between Mirjam, her then-husband, and the De Bruijns, Mirjam left her spouse and moved in with Victor and Bianca. The threesome bought a bigger bed, while Mirjam and her husband divorced. Although neither Mirjam nor Bianca had had a prior relationship with a woman, each had believed for years that she was bisexual. Victor, who describes himself as '100 percent heterosexual,' attributes the trio's success to his wives' bisexuality, which he says has the effect of preventing jealousy."

Not that there's anything wrong with that, in some quarters. I guess this is good news for Utah. Apparently the federal government was wrong for pushing it's morality on those polygamist human rights crusaders from The Church of Latter Day Saints. You know, consenting adults and all that. Children are no match for personal freedom.

BTW I subscribed to The Weekly Standard last year after Time and Newsweek renewed their twice annual slander of Christianity and my wife asked for a news weekly to keep up with current events. The Standard is far superior. There's not as many pictures but that's not a bad thing if you are after facts. My wife reads it cover to cover.
