What's Love Got to Do With It...

... was going to be the title of a post I've been kicking around for the better part of a year on the topic of same-sex marriage.

Note that I say "same-sex marriage" rather than "Gay marriage" which strongly implies sexual orientation. The upshot is that the law wouldn't explicitly mention that two people need to love each other in a sexual way, and therefore wouldn't stop any two arbitrary individuals from wedding for the purpose of garnering some form of benefits.

Well... I was too late, so I can't say "I told you so". Two fellas up in Canada are planning to do it. And Kate from The Road Kill Diaries has an article on the story now.

I tried posting a comment, but the server's busy. I'll post it here:
Will the happy couple be registering at Canadian Tire?
Does the new Canadian Law have same-sex divorce worked out?
