Three’s a Crowd: Trio of Lesbians Get Hitched in Brazil

Three lesbians are calling themselves civilly married after a ceremony in Brazil.

Three anonymous lesbians took an “oath of love” last month after spending years sleeping in the same — assumedly enormous — bed. They are a business woman, a dentist and an office manager, each around 30-years-old, and they are even now planning to have children.

Because they are “shy,” they have only spoken through their attorney, who says the “union is the fruit of love” and that they sought it so they wouldn’t end up abandoned and penniless.

Though they are the first all-woman throuple to civilly marry in Brazil, the first throuple — a man and two women — beat them to the altar three years ago.

A polygamous movement sprung up almost immediately after the Obergefell decision imposing gay marriage on the United States. Three lesbians exchanged “vows” in Massachusetts last year. The not-so-shy Brynn, Doll and Kitten are not formally married, not yet anyway, but Brynn said, “In our eyes we are married. We had specialist lawyers so our assets are equally divided.” They, too, are planning to have children, through an anonymous sperm donor.

Conservatives have argued over the years that man-man marriage would inevitably lead to such threesomes and even more. Gay marriage advocates mocked such concerns saying they were either beside the point, never would happen, or were bigoted.

The Brazilian lesbian’s lawyer, however, put it this way: “All the principles and fundamentals [of the 20111 Brazilian court ruling allowing gay marriage] can also be applied to polyamorous relationships.” Traditional marriage advocates would only agree.

One of the leaders of the national movement to defend traditional marriage the U.S. took to Facebook to say, “I told you so. I told you so. I told you so.” One for each of the three blushing brides.
