Can people only marry in two people, Mom?

16Dec08

Um, what do you mean?  Who can marry who?

No, I mean, I mean.  Can two mens marry one women?

Oh. No, not in the United States.  It’s against the law.  Here, only two people can get married.

Oh.  (pause)  That’s too bad, I don’t know what I will do then!

Why?

Cyrus wants to marry Izzy too!

Oh.  (pause)  Well, what will happen is that Izzy will get to choose who she wants to marry, if anybody.  

Oh.  Okay.

But you can have as many friends as you want, even when you’re married.

Oh?

Yeah.  And so if she marries Cyrus, or somebody else, you can still be her friend.

Oh, good.
