Well, that didn’t take long. Look for the first beastiality marriage license request in 5…4…3…2…1…
Nathan Collier said he was inspired by the recent Supreme Court decision that made marriage equal. He said he was particularly struck by the words of dissenting Chief Justice John Roberts who claimed giving gay couples the right to marry, might inspire polygamy.
And so this week, Mr Collier and his two wives, Victoria and Christine, entered a courthouse in Billings, Montana, and sought an application to legalise the trio’s polygamous union,
“Right now we’re waiting for an answer,” Mr Collier told The Independent. “I have two wives because I love two women and I want my second wife to have the same legal rights and protection as my first.”
He added: “Most people are not us. I am not trying to define what marriage means for anybody else – I am trying to define what marriage means for us.”
The practice of bigamy – holding multiple marriage licences – is outlawed in all 50 of the US states, Montana among them. But Mr Collier said he planned to sue if his application was denied.
Mr Collier said he was former Mormon who had been excommunicated for polygamy and now owned a refrigeration business in Billings.
He married his first wife, Victoria, 40, in 2000. The 46-year-old, who appeared in the reality TV show Sister Wives, held a religious ceremony to marry second wife, Christine, in 2007 but did not sign a marriage license to avoid bigamy charges.
His first wife, Victoria, said that she and her husband’s second wife got along “like sisters”.
