This thread has gone HORRIBLY wrong.

It's not even remotely about same sex marriages.  WTF??

That's a false equivalency. Marriage is a legal contract that had has many forms throughout history.

Really? How many forms exactly, apart from polygamy and from the short-term "contract marriages" which serve as legal prostitution substitute in Shiite islam? Do tell us.

Just because you don't agree with gay marriage doesn't make it wrong or suddenly turn homosexuality into an illness.

Wrong, and wrong. I never said anything about "gay marriage", and I never called homosexuality an "illness". Try to read before posting.

Wow... A tongue in cheek story about a woman marrying a bridge and it turns into a debate about gay marriage... Grow up people.

Tongue-in-cheek you say?

These days it is incredibly hard to decipher that considering the growing amount of insanity I see in the human race as a whole.
People will do almost anything then turn and claim how "normal" it is. Why not marry your tv or car? I'm certain it has been done.

I don't know about marring a car.  But, some dude was burried with his car.  I think it was a mustang.

Each to their own. Their relationship doesn't affect us, so why get so steamed about it?

marrying the bridge makes complete sense to me but thats because I'm one of those weirdo artist types - she's a weirdo artist herself, her thing is bridges, she travels around recording the vibrations of bridges - I'd love to hear those recordings, I bet they sound great - and I'm willing to bet she listens to them with a scientific ear and an artists passion - this has nothing to do with sex, gay, straight or otherwise - this is not a "legal" marriage by any definition, this is a classic example of performance art - shes committing herself to her craft and her obsession - many people have died for their art, she has embraced hers and made it her one true love
